Sorry for the late reply, anne-ology, I haven't been able to get back to this.

This is an internal use document only, so once it is finished, there will be no need to change the document, unless some needed modification is discovered later.

The fill in fields will be populated with information that changes with each ticket in our work order system. I'm trying to prevent the form from becoming mangled unintentionally.

So what I need, as I said in the original post, is a document that will be "locked", but you can still complete the fields. When that is accomplished, the file will be marked read only so when it's saved with new information, a new filename will be required.

       I don't know the details as to how this would work;
          whenever I upload anything, I always click on 'only those with
the link' can open which keeps prying roving eyes from seeing.

       Hoping this helps to some degree,

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Document protection

Windows 7 Ultimate

I've created a document with a simple table.  In one column, each cell
contains a fill in field.

I want to protect the entire document from changes *except* the fields.

How can I do this?  I haven't found a way up to now.

Incidentally, the help file for cell protection does not match the program.
