Hi

I have a number of Complex Crystal Reports which need outputting to PDF. I can do that no problem.

However, I need to encrypt the PDF with a password. I am not sure how to do that.

Can someone please give me a hand on how to do this?

Thanks.

You need to use a 3rd-party tool like visual Cut

Hi mimcc

This does not look like it can do it programmically, although I did not watch the complete tutorial.

Overnight, we have found a solution using the tools here.

Its a pity that this feature is not available for Crystal Reports.

Visual Cut does have a command line interface so you should be able to call  it from an application.
