    PDF encryption

    I need to be able to convert word docs into .pdf files, but I need to be able to save the .pdf encrypted.
    There's software on the market such as Expert PDF 6...etc...which works well...at a price.
    Does anyone know of any 'Open-Source' freeware that will do the job please?

    piaqt, Thanks for your reply.I've had a look. Encryption seems to be missing from the 'free' ones I've looked at, but I'll try another download from the site you gave.......

    I've finally bought Expert PDF 6 from 'avanquest' site. It works OK and encrypts any PDF document. It's not very user friendly, but most of us will manage it OK. It wont convert Microsoft Publisher documents. The cost on avanquest site was 39 I emailed them and told them that Amazon were selling it for 29. I got a reply allowing me to buy it for 24. So worth complaining!
    Anyone thinking of buying - contact me first !!!!!!!!
