I currently have a few reports that have bank information in. I want to be able to password protect the ability of opening/running these reports. Is there a way to do this? I have researched but I haven't found anything that gives an idea on how to accomplish this.

Also, is there a way to password protect an excel file that you export.

You can add a password manually to the spreadsheet by the following:

Dont know what your process is of "making" the spreadsheet so if its a automated way you will need get excel object and then assign the password.

Another way is to place it in a secured directory so only user authorized to access that directory can even get to the spread sheet.

Used the reporting manager to limit access of the report to certain domain users only.
