Thread: Can I password-encrypt an Excel file?

    Question Can I password-encrypt an Excel file?

    I do not see any options for adding a password to encrypt an Excel file when using the "Microsoft Excel Writer" or "Microsoft Excel Output" PDI steps. I see options for protecting sheets, but that's not what I'm looking for. I really need to add a password to the file in order to prevent people from opening file. Is there a feature to do this, and if not, is there a plan to add this as a future update?
