Topic: Expiration, simply.

I've searched the whole message board here and the only answer to this is unacceptable. I just want a document to expire after a preset amount of time (I don't even really care if it's a PDF, .DOC, or other). This simply can't be that hard to manage. I've looked at things like Fileopen and Authentica and the problem with those is that I don't have $2500 to spend on a solution and I don't have a web server (or any other servers) and I'm not going to put one in just for this. There must be a way to simply have a document expire when a certain date is reached. I can do it in a Word Macro right now but so far, I haven't figured out how to force a user to either accept that macro or to keep them from copying a document once they have it. PDF seems like a good way to go as its security seems better and it's a standard product but I simply can't go to a high-end solution like Fileopen for this. It's just way too expensive. Isn't there any other way to do it?
