Password on Document / Web Application

I am looking for a quick and dirty way to put a password on a document.  Is there a way in the document properties to set a password on it?  I just want to set the password, so when someone tries to open the document they get prompted for a password which I will predefine.  Very similar to how an Excel workbook password works.

You can use Section Access for this.  No need for data reduction, use the simplest you can think of.

Re: Password on Document / Web Application

Editor Script -> File ->Create Hidden Script -> "Put your  HIDEN SCRIPT password"  adn the in this sheet put something like this:

Section Access;

LOAD * INLINE [

    ACCESS, USERID, PASSWORD,%FLIGHTYPE, OMIT

    ADMIN, ADMIN, ADMIN123,*];

Section Application;

------------------------------------------------------------

Now look at this, those ar your credentials for the current document

USER = ADMIN

PASSWORD = ADMIN123

HOPE THIS HELPS

REGARDAS!

There is also a good video series on QlikTech's YouTube channel about security and how to set-up the various section access scenarios:
