Create Excel document with EPPlus and assign user with Information Rights Management
user43381 Published in September 19, 2018, 9:08 am
Is there a way, using EPPlus, to create an Excel document and protect it's content so that only specific user(s) can access the information inside it. This is possible when manually creating an Excel document and using the IRM capabilities within Excel, but I've not yet found a way of doing this at the point the Excel document is created using EPPlus.
I have tried embedding a VBA sub routine using Workbook_Open(), but many companies set policies to prevent running Macros on Office documents when they open because of the threat of viruses/malware.
IRM primarily controls WHO can access the content of the document, which is different to the Worksheet Protection capabilities in EPPlus that restrict WHAT someone can do.
