Aspose Document protection


We are using Aspose for JAVA version 1.5 and facing one issue of document protection.

Our documents are partially protected and we would like to update some section fields of documents using Aspose.

When we load the document to do some updates, document gets fully protected. And then user is not able to update any of the fields.

We want to keep the document as it is (Partially protected).

I have tried all the ways of ProtectionType class but that does not fulfill our requirement.

Please do the needful.

Thanks for your inquiry.

Do you use Aspose.Cells for Java or Aspose.Words for Java or else?

If you are using Aspose.Cells for Java to manage/manipulate Excel Spreadsheets, we recommend you to try our latest version v2.2.0: http://www.aspose.com/community/files/72/java-components/aspose.cells-for-java/entry233107.aspx

If you still find the issue, kindly post your input + output Excel files and paste sample code here to reproduce the issue, we will check it asap.

And, for your reference about protecting/unprotecting spreadsheets, see the documents:

Thank you.


We are using Aspose.Words, is there anything for Words?
