Save Word Document DOC DOCX with Password Encryption using C# .NET Code | Set Password to Open Word Document

Please let me know if it is possible to do the following:

  • Save Word document as .doc or .docx with a password, so that it can only be opened/read with that password
  • Require that password is ALWAYS used to open the document
  • Prevent removal or changing of that password with that document

If this is possible, please direct me to relevant API documentation.
Thanks!

@pmarangoni,

In order to save document with encryption please use the following code snippet:

Document doc = new Document("D:\\Temp\\in.docx");

OoxmlSaveOptions saveOptions = new OoxmlSaveOptions();
saveOptions.Password = "myPassword";

doc.Save("D:\\Temp\\out.docx", saveOptions);
