Can I send a PDF that requires a password to open?  I want to send PDF files 
to an email account with multiple users, but only want selected users to be 
able to open the attachment.

Outlook has no control over the security of a PDF file, that's handled 
by the PDF file creation software and the reader, but you can certainly 
e-mail the file to the recipients.

I don't think you can password protect PDF files, but you could always zip 
it and password the zip.  you'll need to find a way to tell the right people 
what the password is - you won't be able to email it to them if the others 
also read the mail.

Adobe Acrobat allows you to "set password to open" at least as far back 
as version 6, but the zip folder password option in Windows will work as 
well.

Outlook XP keeps asking for my password
Hi there, I have four different email accounts under Outlook XP (under Vista) and everytime I open Outlook, I get asked for the password for each. Also, when I send an email, I get the same thing.

I tried entering the password and checking "Remember Password" in the change account settings window, but it's not sticking after I close Outlook. Any ideas on what's causing this.

Changing password protection on sheets
Hi, Just a quick query. I have a 60 odd sheet excel sheet with individual passwords on each sheet, that need changing, each password is the same on each sheet. Is there a way to change all the passwords at once. Or will password protecting the whole workbook after unprotecting do that same job. Each sheet has locked and unlocked cells so only people who know the password can change the locked sections. Thanks in advance for any help offered. Cheers tom You could use a macro that cycles through all 60 sheets. J.E. McGimpsey shares one at: http://mcgimpsey.com/excel/subs/protect_gr...

pdf
Good staff wanted to create a PDF in Visual C + +. Net, it would contain information from the database. He has to print what is in the form windows... dataset to pdf or GridView to pdf Is this a question? Does it have a point? Would it matter if the staff was evil? Do they still want to? If the question is "How can I create a PDF file?" the answer is to get any number of PDF printer drivers and simply open one and print to it. Alternatively, you can look for any number of open-source PDF converter. Google would be a good start. joe On Sun, 9 Mar 2008 16:49:01 -0700, Ma...

Printing Excel 2007 pie charts to PDF
I am attempting to print a series of PDF files (approx. 7000) from an Excel 2007 file, and I am having issues with the size of each file and the time it takes to generate each PDF file. The pages in Excel that I am using have several pie charts and line graphs, and I think they are the reason my files are so large. One of the pages in particular has six pie charts (Style 26 in Excel 2007), and printing just that page created an Adobe PDF file that is ~1.4 MB.

Outlook changing PDF extention to PDF=
