Hi,

I am working on a project in VB6.0 and SQL Server. We use MS Excel for our reports. We also use server side COM+ components.

When the code comes to the following statement, the application is crashing.


ObjExcel.Protect strPassword

We are not sure why this command is failing for some excel files and is working for some excel files (with the same password etc.)

Any help in this regard is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
