4891Re: password protected documents
- Mar 2, 2008Tom,
It's interesting that when you used NeoOffice to open
the password-protected WP doc, you got hash, but
when I did I got a blank file. I wonder why? My protected
WP file had no content other than "This is a test"
repeated a few times. Was yours longer? Mine initially
had .wpd as its extension. I changed it to .txt, and
NeoOffice asked me about ASCII characters and then
displayed a few lines of ##### preceded by WPC and
followed by PRT and some other characters - perhaps
the #### was a stand-in for protected text? I tried
.doc and no extension, and NeoOffice inconsistently
either displayed the same #### or crashed.
Either way, the password protection seemed to have worked.
