Recipient-specific passwords can be applied to each section of a bursted report when sending as a PDF. Using Esend’s Report Distribution feature, the special Mail-to keywords USERPASSWORD and OWNERPASSWORD will use a value on the spooled file, defined by line and position, as the password for each resulting PDF file. Something known by the recipient, like a social security number, is a good example.
The report sample below generates a list of customers by state. The report will page break on each unique state value (such as CA, or IL). The report generates a different e-mail address for each section.
Both the rules that follow use a special Mail-to value—USERPASSWORD (required to open) and/or OWNERPASSWORD (required to modify). Line and Starting positions are specified for a value on the page that will be used as a password (such as SSN). Both rule examples use the state value as a pass- word for each section.
You can add *REMOVE to the Search Text value, which removes the password value from the resulting PDF file. You must include the length value when you use *REMOVE.
Either of the Edistrib rules above can be used in an Esend forwarding rule (EFWDRULES). Again, the resulting output is a PDF file.
Note: The Password parameter is NOT specified in the EDISTRIB command. It is added by the edistrib rule—PWD_EM.
