When I use the security setting and set the password, I can still overwrite my original document. What am I doing wrong?

Who are you trying to protect the document from? What else have you tried? –  AthomSfere Apr 8 '13 at 13:08
Is this Windows? If so, I would try to right click on the file in Windows Explorer then go to Properties and make sure it's marked as read-only first. –  BigHomie Apr 8 '13 at 13:12
