With the Word 2003 Redaction Add-in, users of Microsoft Office Word 2003 now have an effective, user-friendly tool to help them redact confidential text in Word documents.
Microsoft Office Word 2003 Redaction Add-in makes it easy for you to mark sections of a document for redaction and the sections you specified are blacked out.
However, they advise that you carefully review any documents redacted using this tool to confirm that all the information that you intended to redact was successfully redacted.
Remember that the redacted text is replaced with a black bar and cannot be converted back to text or retrieved. So it is better to keep a back up copy before you start experimenting with this product.
