Dim sFile = "\\server\servdir\somefile.pdf"
Dim sUser As String = "user"
Dim sPass As String = "pass+word"
Dim SDomain As String = "XYZ"
 
'newPass = New System.Security.SecureString() ???????

I haven't worked with secure string, but maybe try this:

Dim newPass as New Security.SecureString()
For Each c As Char In sPass
    newPass.AppendChar(c)
Next c
