|VB.NET Programmers Come In And Solve This Problem Please by VURN(m): 2:43pm On Jun 07, 2012|
i was asked by my HOD to develop a CGPA system for the department but on of the requirements of the system is scaring me away so i decided to come for your help.
The rquirement is that a report be generated in pdf or any word document that can only be read (read only) and can not be edited by anybody as they will send the soft copy to the senate and they would not want any one to change grades or CGP. Any advice or help will be highly appreciated.
Ok, i develop using VB.NET.
Thanks for your concern and assistance.

Coincidentally, the very requirement you state seems to be to be the easiest code you would write. U use d application call/write function in VB to write the output to word or a pdf writer and subsequently password the resulting document. Am not so sure if you can do the writing and password concurrently but it looks possible.
You can Google "print to doc/pdf vb.net code" for the correct syntax. If you still cant make any headway, post ur email or PM me tru NL profile page and i'll send you a useful ebook on VB.net programming.

Visual Basic .NET How to Program, 2/e, By Deitels. Its about 15mb so it will take a while to upload to yahoo. Expect it in ur mail tomorrow.
Shall see if i can add a VB.net pocket reference to it.
Is ur email @yahoo.ca or @yahoo.com (is it a mistake?), Kindly confirm.

It is @yahoo.ca and not .com. Thanks alot for your support. The idea coming to my head is to create a crystal report with which i use code to export it to pdf at run time but how do i password this pdf so it can not be edited by any body. It will contain grades and cgpa which can be manipulated if the pdf is editable. This is what my HOD wants to avoid. Thanks alot bro.

Like i said, exporting the report is not the problem but applying the password concurrently. I did a similar software based on MS access 2007 a few years ago. In my own case i exported the reports to word docs and pdf (using MS pdf addin).
If it cannot be done concurrently as it is generated then u will have to write a vba macro dat will be triggered to password the MS word document on generation.
For the pdf see if u can use a pdf writer like Bullpdf or cutepdf. U set d default settings of the writer to locked and provide a password. This will automatically password the pdf as it is created. I have not tried calling Bullpdf or Cutepdf from Vb so dont know if its possible but u could give it a try.

Check ur mail. Just the book. Couldnt get the VB.net Pocket reference to attach.
|Re: VB.NET Programmers Come In And Solve This Problem Please by VURN(m): 11:24pm On Jun 07, 2012|
Thanks alot dear, you have been of much help already. I have got the book and its really good.
I think i love the one of VBA macro which when trigard, will password the word document. More over, it must not be a pdf so, i also like ms doc but i dont know much about VBa macro, how they are created and triggerd. May God increase and bless you.
|Re: VB.NET Programmers Come In And Solve This Problem Please by The Arbiter: 12:12pm On Jun 08, 2012|
Glad i could help. Shall scout around for a good MS-word VBA code book and send to you.
My kind regards.

my advice First get the data in a preview state, then find a code that would export that view-state to pdf.
i'll scan and look for such a code for u sha, but i cant promise u anything.
