Recommended Posts


I did not start usig AutoIT yet, however read somewhere that AutoIT could be the sollution to my challenge.

I have multiple Word documents that need to be password protected. Can AutoIT assist me in performing this task easily?

After getting the word application object (see _Word* functions in the help file), it would look something like:

$wdAllowOnlyFormFields = 0x2
$sPassword = "Pa$$w0rd"
$oWord.Activedocument.Protect('Type:=' & $wdAllowOnlyFormFields & ', NoReset:=True,Password:="' & $sPassword & '"')

Not tested, 'cause I don't have Word here.
