How do you unlock or "unprotect" templates you have created 2007?

In 2003, I use to be able to go to Options and Unprotect at template that I 
had created. I can't find a way to do this in 2007 and am trying to use the 
templates I had created in 2003. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

If this is a protected form, you can use the Review tab: Click the Protect 
Document button to show the Restrict Formatting and Editing pane. Click the 
Stop Protection button.

However, if you want to add form form fields to your file, you'll need to 
display the Developer tab (Office button | Word Options, Popular: "Show 
Developer tab in the Ribbon").

Navigating to unprotected Cells in Protected Sheets
Is there any way to specify the order in which a user may navigate (using the tab key) from one unprotected cell to another in a protected worksheet? The order in which data will be entered is not corresponding to the current navigation path, and I cannot figure out a way to modify the directions anywhere.

Move cursor through all unprotected cells in a protected worksheet
I have Excel 2003 at home and have completed a protected worksheet with a number of unprotected cells for data entry. The cursor skips thru each unprotected cell without trawling thru the rest of the worksheet. When I copy this onto another computer at work, the cursor moves through EVERY cell, although it will display a message if I try to enter anything in a protected cell. What is set on my computer at home that is not set on the works computer? (I am using the ENTER key, not the tab or anything).

unprotect (in Excel 2007) workbook created and protected in Excel
When I open (in Excel 2007) a workbook created and protected in Excel 2003, I cannot unprotect it.

Formatting In Unprotected Section of Template

Protect or Unprotect Cell dependent on different cell

Unprotect a Word Template
I posted something similar a few days ago, but it remains unresolved and has run out of steam. I will be more specific this time in the hope that someone can give me a quick and precise answer. How do I unprotect a Word Template (I know the password) from within Access (2003) so I can complete fields, and then re-protect the document so users cannot change anything? This does not need high security - it is simply a means of preventing changes after the data has left the database.

Formatting unprotected sections

So far it's ok - but in the unprotected section I'm unable to use things like 'Bullets' and 'Numbering' - why is this, and mere importantly how do I solve this? Any help would be greatly appreciated /JEN As you are using Word 2007, consider using Content Controls rather than formfields.
