Default Password Protection

Is there any way you can protect a Publisher Document by using Passwords, as
you can do in Microsoft Word.

Thanks for any help

Nope. Don't think your Word documents are protected, either - the
security is *very* weak.

You can use a password-protected ZIP file of your .pub, or you can
create a PDF (which may or may not be encrypted).

Try reading http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306531

Newer versions of WinZip have more advanced password-protection that is
more secure, but this is generally incompatible with standard ZIP software.

Did you miss the fact that the poster asked about Publisher, not Word.

There are a couple of things that can be done but it would help us to know
what the OP wanted to achieve.

If the OP's goal was to protect a Publisher file with a password, EasyFP
will do the job.
