Export Password Protected Excel Report From Crystal?

Is it possible to export a crystal report in a excel format with a password?

I know in MS Excel 2003 you can password protect spreadsheets. But I don't see anything in Crystal Reports that would password protect an excel file.

I am using CRXI R2 for developing reports.

Thanks

Just as you can't password protect a Crystal report file you cannot password protect an exported XLS file.

Hi

It is not possible to password protect exported reports from Crystal. Security of non-rpt files is not a function that is part of the product and it is handled by the third party product that the file is exported to.

We cannot recommend or endorse any particular third party software but I found one software tool.

Hope this helps.

Consider a 3rd-party tool as a solution (for a list of such tools, see http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html).

My [Visual CUT|http://www.milletsoftware.com/visualcutBenefit.htm] software allows you to export Crystal reports to a password protected excel spreadsheet.

Cheers,

I wish crystal would integrate exporting crystal reports as an excel spreadsheet with password. I'll use a third party software.
