Hello everyone,

anyone could suggest me how I can create a new word document from a custom template authenticated by user/password with WordApplication not visible so I can update only two places automatically then saving in another folder and printing as PDF?.....

Thanks to all!
Ciao,
Luigi

Then you should be in that application zone. I will move the question for you.  I doubt if you're going to get any answers in the Word forum.

At least, anyone knows why if I write:

WordApplication->ActiveDocument->Shapes->AddTextEffect(msoTextEffect1, "text", "Arial Black", 1, msoFalse, msoFalse, 0, 0)

C++ Builder couldn't find a match?...

OK here I am... I did some investigations and tests around Word.Application....

I have a template .dot which has read-password and write-password... how I would set the wordapplication as here:

WordDoc = WordDocs.OleFunction("Add", OleVariant(path_of_template_name.dot,...)

to pass automatically passwords?....
If I do

WordDoc = WordDocs.OleFunction("Add", OleVariant(path_of_template_name.dot,false, 1);
then
WordDoc.OlePropertySet("PasswordTemplate") = passwordtemplate;
WordDoc.OlePropertySet("WritePasswordTemplate") = passwordtemplate;

indeed executing OleFunction(...), Word opens and asks me directly the password instead of executing OlePropertySet... how I can figure that out?...

Thanks

I've figured the solution at end:

since I was using PDFCreator which is an external component, I created a COM object with Delphi:

    PDFCreator := CreateOLEObject('PDFCreator.clsPDFCreator');

so I can set options of PDFCreator like password as in this example:

    PDFCreator.cOption('PDFOwnerPasswordString') := ownerpass;
    PDFCreator.cOption('PDFUserPasswordString') := ownerpass;

where ownerpass is a parameter variable passed by calling code, so that solved my issue. Hope that'd be useful to everyone...there's a complete Delphi example in PDFCreator sample though..

Thanks again to all.
Ciao
