I am using MS Word 2003 on Windows XP Pro SP3.
Yesterday by looking through my MS Word 2000 book and using some logic I managed to figure out how to password protect an MS Word Doc. I then noticed an "Advanced" button. I clicked on it and saw the Encryption Type options in the attached image.
The default is the Office 97/2000 Compatible one. The one at the very bottom (Not seen in the image) is Microsoft Strong Cryptographic Provider.
QUESTIONS: Are some better / stronger / more difficult / or even close to impossible to crack than say the default "Office 97/2000 Compatible" one? Will they all be able to be opened up by any and ALL MS Word versions upon entering the correct password?
