Hi All,

I print report to OOCalc.

I want to protect its file from being changed manually by user.

How could I do it ?

Thank you.

Or set a password on the document. Or change user permissions for that document to read only from the operating system.

Hi All,

I still want to use (print) oocalc and I have no idea how to protect it using code after I finish printing it.

Thank you.

That is a great post about setting the password and it would be protected even if you email it.

If you just need to protect it locally--on your network in a certain folder, another way would be to change the file's permission so that other users only have read and execute privileges on that file:

Of course if it is a spreadsheet and  you want to protect part from changes and the rest be changeable then the above is better by far.
