Topic: Need to LOCK DOWN fields in New PDF
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 74381

I'm working on an application that merges data from a database with fields in a PDF template, then saves the template on a webserver for the user to see. This works great, except that I want the document to be unalterable. What the user gets is a document that is read only, meaning they can't save it, but they can still type over fields then print with the corrupted information. How do I build the document such that the fields cannot be typed over? I've tried:

newDoc.getfield(RS.Fields(29).Name).ReadOnly = True
newDoc.flattenpages
newDoc.saveAs OutFile
newDoc.closeDoc

But still no success. Anybody had this problem before?
