Assuming this is not a protected form, then possibly the application has not
been activated, or it is a trial version that has expired.

Hi Roopa,

May be your word document protected by password. Try the following,

Tools--> Unprotect document--> and give password.

Soundar.

Maybe you have a trial version of Office 2007, and the trial period has
ended. Or maybe you have not activated your Office software.

What happens if you start Word 2007 and click on Office Button | Word
Options | Resources | Activate? If you are already activated, a dialog
box saying so will appear. If you are not activated, the Activation
Wizard will start. If you have an expired trial version, a dialog box
will prompt you to enter a valid product key or convert (purchase a key)
online.

Smile Solution to This modification is not allowed, because section is locked. Fixed.

I've tried this so many places and got no solution. I've tried Protect Document, Developer's Tab, Deleting entries from Registry and Activated my Office and nothing worked. Finally, I got my own way around it. And just because of this, I registered to this site, so I could post the solution. Enjoy and Share.

So here it is.

1. Copy your text (Ctrl + A) from Office 2007
2. Paste it in WordPad
3. Copy it from WordPad
4. Paste it in a NEW Office 2007 Document and wala, you are done.

You won't lose any formating, Tabbing or bulletins.

Peace and share.
