    Hi, and thank you for your help. :)

    What I would like to be able to do is add on and edit some files online from
    2-3 different computers (all are Window 7 and all have Office 2007), and yet
    have the files be secure, as they are my personal passwords (not my banking,
    as I leave that to my memory) . Right now I have tried Dropbox, yet anyone
    who has acess to my PCs, has acess to the Dropbox, and the website. I tried
    using AxCrypt to encrypt a file, and sent it to Dropbox. Yet, if I want to
    add another web site password, I can't do it online, I have to download it
    to my PC, then after I edit, it wants this new change to be backed up again
    in a "new" file name, and then can be resent back as a new file name.

    So after all that, I have 2 new files to delete on my pc and a "new" one in
    Dropbox, just to make one change. I just want to be able to go online, and
    change a file from any of my PCs, and have it be secure. Is there such a
    thing?

    Thanks again for any help :)

    I did just try Office Live Workspace, and that would work, as long as I
    didn't share that sight with anyone? Unless I could somehow encrypt the
    individual MS Office files and be able to add to them as needed? Could that
    be done individually through Properties/Advanced/Encrypt Contents?

    Look in the HELP section of your Word file. Seems to be straightforward.
