the problem was that I didn't add the save tool so the only thing it did was to try to encrypt. I didn't know that I have to also add "save". Now it works. Thank you anyway
I did that, but it still made me add the password to each document. Is there a way to do this so that all the files have the same password and it is only one step instead of for each file? Clearly I am doing something wrong. Thanks!
I figured it out...Thanks!

So what is the answer? How did you add the same password to all the document in one step instead of for each file? Thanks!
