Essential DocIO improves document password support

October 26, 2011

Updates in 2011

  • Write Protection with Password Support for Word 2007 and Word 2010 Documents - Essential DocIO already supports document protection with passwords for Word 97–2003 documents. Document write protection is a set of restrictions that is used to prevent unintentional changes to parts or all of a document. However, this protection does not encrypt the document. With this protection on, you can open and view the document generated without a password, but you cannot edit the contents of the write-protected document.
  • Field Updating Engine - A field in a Word document is a placeholder for data that might change upon updating fields.  A field contains a field code, field separator, field result, and field end. The field code contains information about how the field result is to be calculated and updated. The field result specifies the resultant value of the field. A field updating engine updates the field result based on the field code information.
