I understand that most of you are having this issue and I feel for you. After that, the icon will now appear unhighlighted and the icon will be gone from the status bar. How do I revert all my documents back to 2003? If it does, I'll ask our infrastructure guys to monitor the network traffic to identify possible causes. I am telling people to try this solution as a workaround, but haven't heard from anyone if it works: the business side is not happy with giving users a complicated workaround when most of them are not very computer savvy. We have no idea what caused it, and we hope that we won't see it again. Our network admin made a couple of changes to the way the F5 device was load balancing and we have no longer had the locking issue.
Hi All, Thank you all for contributing to this forum post and actively engaging in Box's Community. If not then you know it is not a client side problem. Step 5: Then, click Open button to unlock your document with the recovered password. It will discover all character combinations until recovering your password. This document can no longer be edited. Fortunately, there are two unlocking ways here: One is to recover the original password to Open Excel file, and the other is to directly remove password. When finished editing the form fields, click Design Mode again to deselect it.
Make sure you remember the password. I hope that's a bit more clear. Step 2: and configure attack parameters. My suggestion was to import the document with the locked table into a new, blank document, which should copy the document's content without including any document protection.

Use strong passwords that combine uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. To edit the locked document, you have to save the file as a copy and edit the copy. Or you might have to be listed as an authenticated owner for the document. Deleting the document from this folder has solved the issue for me. The cells expanded to accomodate my changes.
It is critical that you remember your password. Note: the editing controls for Microsoft Word forms are not shown in the ribbon by default, so you first have to to use them. I don't get an authentication error dialog box and I can open my doc from the Downloads folder just fine. How to edit a Word document locked by password to modify If you open a modifying protected document, the Password dialog box displays, if you don't have the password, you can click Read Only button to open the document in Read-Only mode so that you can view and read the document, but you will not be able to make changes without knowing the password. With Office 2003 it is not a full integration with SharePoint 2007 because Office 2003 was out prior to SharePoint 2007. Next, I opened a new blank document using the newly made, locked template. It was a huge headache for me when I was getting this problem, too.
Waiting 10 minutes is not acceptable either. Another suggestion I have is to create a new out of the box plain Web Application. For example, select a block of paragraphs, a heading, a sentence, or a word. So password recovery time will be shortened comparing to when you don't do anything. Smart attack type: If you know nothing about the password, then you have to select Smart type.
The Restrict Editing task pane displays buttons for moving to the regions of the document that you have permission to change. See also What do you want to do? I have all my word documents from school arranged in folders based on each semester. Next, I exited that test. If I goto Review, Protect Document, Restrict Formatting and Editing, both Formatting restrictions and Editing restrictions are unchecked and Start enforcement is grayed out so I don't think it's protected. Step 4: When password was removed, you can unlock your workbook without on difficulty.
Open the Restrict Formatting and Editing task pane If you close the task pane and then try to make changes where you do not have permission, Word displays the following message in the status bar: This modification is not allowed because the selection is locked. So, the both good and bad thing is, we are all stuck in this tech. I was also able to modify the column width, row height, etc. Your trial of Office 2007 has expired. Then it will be faster than the Brute-force attack. How to configure the attack parameters? In this new environment we'll be using a load balancer, so at least now we know that this may cause problems.
