Hi Guy's: I'm working on a word document (work in progress) which I will want to send as an email attachment. When I save through Tools, Options, security remove private info I get a MS Word Privacy Warning saying, may contain macros, active x, XML expansion pack info, or web components. Can't remove via File Save on security tab setting remove private information on save..... or words to that effect. As I am including copy/paste email messages and web based text from forums as needed it no doubt does have this privacy info. Question: How do I remove all private information in this document before sending it? If I covert it to a pure text format and work it there and copy back to word will that work? Please advise based on actual experience doing this, thanks.
