    Boo, y'all

    When browsing in Explorer-style around various files, I came across a user that has a small lock icon on the bottom right, on top of the traditional Microsoft Word (2003) icon.

    I have tried to replicate to get this, without fail (trying various different levels of security and adding locks in forms, etc)

    Does anyone know how to replicate this issue? I need to know, to look good :)

    Hmm, doesnt seem to be anything obvious in Word. Is it something to do with IRM or perhaps a 3rd party app?

    There is an application which I think you can download a freeware/shareware version of called Icon Lock-it not sure if this has been used but I don't think that lock is standard windows/office behaviour.

    Link..

    It could be something to do with integrated software -

    Word and Outlook are integrated with a document management system, but we can't replicate the problem using that system, so we tried to switch our attention to Microsoft.... ah well, onwards with the fiddling (when I get back to work Monday!!)
