Part V: Appendixes > Application-Specific Protection

Application-Specific Protection

Because different applications have different capabilities and functions, there are also different types of document content protection available. These protections are in addition to the ability to password-protect workbooks or documents.

Setting password protection for individual documents can be partially automated through VBA or disabled in situations where you do not want it available to users through a policy setting. However, hard-coding a password into a program is not a recommended practice and can lead to weakened security. As a part of all good security and encryption practices, using strong password methods provides additional benefit to any attempted security attacks.
