    This works great on a Word 2019 document, stored in Dropbox.

    But when I try to open it on my other laptop, which has Word 2007, it won’t come up with the ‘Enter Password’ box, so I can’t open. Is that normal?

    Is the only solution is to de-encrypt in 2019, then re-encrypt with password in 2007, which I guess is less secure?
    Hope you can give a quick response, thanks. John
