Hello edscebu,

There may be a few other options as what could cause this issue.

  1. The document is marked as final.
  2. The document is protected.
  3. You are using a trial of Office 2007.
  4. Office 2007 has not yet been activated.

This is from: http://www.404techsupport.com/2009/01/microsoft-word-this-modification-is-not-allowed-because-the-selection-is-locked/

Since this is dealing with an Office product, I am moving you to the Office Word category for further assistance.

 

Sincerely,
