1. Password protecting the complete document means that protecting the document like if its password protected and if anybody tries to open it require a password to open the word document.
2. Protecting the structure means nobody can mess with the structure of the word document i.e. formatting, styles etc. However we can provide exceptions and can give only certain domain users which can do it others cannot do the change in the document.
