Why not simply add a password on your document?

Converting each character (surely possible but I don't know how) can be a heavy job!!!

Something like this...

Public Sub ConvertToAsciiPlus128()

    Dim mintCurrentChar As Integer
    Dim mintCurrentAsASCII As Integer

    For mintCurrentChar = 1 To ActiveDocument.Characters.Count
        mintCurrentAsASCII = Asc(ActiveDocument.Characters(mintCurrentChar)) + 128
        MsgBox mintCurrentAsASCII
    Next

End Sub
