   string password

   ) 
public boolean decrypt(String password) 

Parameters

password

String containing the password phrase to decrypt this document.

Remarks

In most cases, the Document is ready to use after it has been obtained. However, some documents such as PDF can be encrypted and required a password before it can be parsed and used. Most of the properties and methods of Document will throw an error if the document has not been decrypted. IsEncrypted can be used to check if the document is encrypted and if so, Decrypt must be called with a password obtained from the user to unlock the document. When that happens, the value of IsDecrypted becomes true and the document is ready to be used. Note that IsEncrypted will stay true to indicate the original state of the document.

For more information, refer to Loading Encrypted Files Using the Documents Library.
