To create PDF output I'm using the following reporting API functions:

  • CALL fgl_report_SelectDevice("PDF")
  • LET l_handler = fgl_report_commitCurrentSettings()

Is there any way to create PDF files contains a chosen password? Same as the shown photo, and by entering the correct password it will open the document.

Hi,
a Goggle search turned up a tool called pdftk which seems to do the job. I tried the following:
$sudo aptitude install pdftk
$pdftk report.pdf output report_pw.128.pdf owner_pw robinson user_pw friday
$pdfinfo -upw friday report_pw.128.pdf

sure, with pleasure. First I would like to know if you were able to create a password protected PDF document using pdftk as I described in my previous post?
Best regards,
