Protecting Your Project
If your project is saved on a shared network, you may want to set a password to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information. Each time you open the password protected chart you will be prompted to enter this password.
To password protect projects:
- With your project open, click the File tab and select Prepare | Protect Project.
The Protect Project dialog box opens.
- Enter a password in the Password field, and enter it again in the Confirm Password field.
- Click OK. The project is now password protected.
Note: Once you have protected a file, any user is prompted for a password whenever the file is opened.
To unprotect projects:
- With your project open, click the File tab and select Prepare | Unprotect to open the Password Required dialog box.
- Enter the password and click OK. The project is now unprotected.
Note: DO NOT forget the password. Once a project is protected, no one can access it without the password, not even the author.
