Is there a way to encrypt a report so that even if you give it to them they can not check the code?

Please note I am not asking to decrypt the the standard report which is hidden by Software AG or someone. I am curious to know how to do that?

Hi Abhijit,    you can encrypt a report via report properties. Select the author field and press shift/ctrl/alt and k, then open a new window. Here you can select the options and encrypt your report.   NOTE: You can encrypt a report, but not decrypt it. Also make a backup copy of your report before you encrypt it.   Regards Eva

Hi Eva,

Thanks for reminding this solution.

I think you can do decrypt by doing the same thing ie by pressing shift+ctrl+alt+K on Author field. You obviously need to know the password which you used for encrypt.

But definitely it is a good advice to backup incase memory loss:) (so many passwords now-a days)

Thanks heaps.
