using vb to password protect a file

I am looking to send an emailed statement from access that is password protected. I am using access to generate the statements into a pdf format. It looks like neither acrobat nor windows compressed file will allow me to assign a password to the attachment. Any suggestions?

Where would the password operate?  Do you want to prevent unauthorized people from opening the attachment, or editing it, or what?  In any case, I think this is an Adobe issue, so you should probably cross-post this question in the Adobe zone.

I would like to password protect the document. There is no need to edit. Just view. I am using the pdf option in MS Office to print them now. The user has to open each one and enter a password then send them to the user (this is a mundane process full of user error possibilities...they coule choose the wrong address).

Is there a way to use VB to protect a print from Access that requires a passord?

Sure. I use this a lot:  ReportToPDF

Some of my client's also use PrimoPDF.
