SDL Trados 7.5.0.756 Build 756
with Word 2002

When I try to open the first segment, I get the message "You can not use Workbench when Track changes is activated, etc.", but not only the function is not activated, but it is greyed in the corresponding Tools menu.
Any hint on how to solve this ? I tried to accept all changes and ather options available, to no avail...

Many thanks in advance !
Sylvain

Try unprotecting it (Tools->Unprotect) and then accept all changes and continue. It may ask you for a password (check with customer).

If not, copy and paste into a new document. That should hopefuflly give you the final text without any tracked changes (but double check to make sure).

Good luck!

Thank you Vito and Daniel,

The document seems indeed to be protected, and since I don't have so much time and don't want to bother the client with this, I simply copied and pasted the content into a new document.
Everythin's running smoothly now

Have a nice day!

Sylvain
