UserPermission Object (Office)
Published: July 09, 2012
Associates a set of permissions on the active document with a single user and an optional expiration date. Represents a member of the active document's Permission collection.
Use the Add method of the Permission object to grant specific permissions on the active document to a new user, with an optional expiration date. Use the Remove method of the UserPermission object to remove a user and the user's permissions.
While some permissions granted through the user interface (such as msoPermissionPrint) apply to all users, you can use the UserPermission object to assign them on a per-user basis with per-user expiration dates.
The following example determines whether the active document has restricted permissions, then lists users and their assigned permissions by returning the UserId, Permission, and ExpirationDate properties of each UserPermission in the document's Permission collection.
Dim irmPermission As Office.Permission Dim irmUserPerm As Office.UserPermission Dim strIRMInfo As String Set irmPermission = ActiveWorkbook.Permission If irmPermission.Enabled Then For Each irmUserPerm In irmPermission strIRMInfo = strIRMInfo & irmUserPerm.UserId & vbCrLf & _ " - Permissions: " & irmUserPerm.Permission & vbCrLf & _ " - Expiration Date: " & irmUserPerm.ExpirationDate & vbCrLf Next MsgBox strIRMInfo, _ vbInformation + vbOKOnly, "IRM Information" Else MsgBox "This document is not restricted.", _ vbInformation + vbOKOnly, "IRM Information" End If Set irmUserPerm = Nothing Set irmPermission = Nothing
