Default Restricting Input in a Word Table

Hi

Is there a way to only allow input in certain defined cells in a Word Table?

I have a user form I send to customers to complete. Requirements are in the left most column, and their input is in the right two columns.

Other parts of the document (outside the table) need to be locked also.



Possible? I've played around with Restrict Editing, but can't see how it can work.


Cheers, Paul.

Put content controls in the cells you want to edit and protect the file for forms.
