    Password protect multiple PDF's each with unique passwords from an Excel spreadsheet




      I have around 200 PDF documents that need to be password protected. Each PDF needs to be password protected with a unique password. I know the passwords that must be applied and that data is in an Excel spreadsheet.


      The PDF documents were generated by a mail merge in Word and printed to PDF. I know the name of the PDF documents and the password that should be applied to the PDF. This data is in an Excel spreadsheet. I want to apply the passwords held in the Excel file to the PDFs.


      I could write a VBA program to do it, but I was wondering if Adobe has anything built in for this.


      Thanks for your help!
