Protecting the Document
Figure 2-11 To convert the file from an earlier version of Word, click Convert on the Info tab of
Backstage view.
Caution !
The document will be converted to the new file format, given the new file extension
(.docx for macro free documents or .dotm for macro enabled documents), and a copy
of the original will not be preserved. Though you can save a converted document back
to the Word 97-2003 file format, if you have any conversion concerns, you should make
a backup copy of your document prior to using the Convert tool or use Save As to
save your document in the new file format instead. For more information about saving
documents, see the section titled “Saving and Sending Your Documents,” on page 58.
Tip
Why Convert? Many of the new features available with both Word 2007 and Word
2010—for example, quick styles, SmartArt, photo effects, and more—are not available
in older file formats. To take full advantage of the latest features designed to enhance
the look and function of your document, convert the file to Word 2010 format.
Protecting the Document
If you share files regularly—both within and outside your organization—you know how
important it is to safeguard the information you create. You might want to prepare a file in
such a way that others can’t change it; ensure that others can only make certain changes—
such as ill out a form, respond to questions, or edit only a specific section.
