Workbook.SetPasswordEncryptionOptions(Object, Object, Object, Object) Method

Definition

Sets the options for encrypting the workbook using a password.

public void SetPasswordEncryptionOptions (object PasswordEncryptionProvider, object PasswordEncryptionAlgorithm, object PasswordEncryptionKeyLength, object PasswordEncryptionFileProperties);

Parameters

PasswordEncryptionProvider
Object

A case sensitive string of the encryption provider.

PasswordEncryptionAlgorithm
Object

A case sensitive string of the algorithmic short name (i.e. "RC4").

PasswordEncryptionKeyLength
Object

The encryption key length, which is a multiple of 8 (40 or greater).

PasswordEncryptionFileProperties
Object

true (default) to encrypt file properties.

Remarks

The PasswordEncryptionProvider, PasswordEncryptionAlgorithm, and PasswordEncryptionKeyLength parameters are not independent of each other. A selected encryption provider limits the set of algorithms and key length that can be chosen.

For the PasswordEncryptionKeyLength parameter there is no inherent limit on the range of the key length. The range is determined by the Cryptographic Service Provider which also determines the cryptographic algorithm.
