Subject RE: Encryption/password protected excel/word files

I should mention that the exceptions don't really tell if the files are
password protected or not. For word, I catch an
ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException, or java.lang.NegativeArraySizeException.
I'm guessing that is not the expected behaviour.

Subject: Encryption/password protected excel/word files

Hi all, 


I am trying to detect if a file is password protected before reading it
(ie, if it is password protected, I want to ignore it). Right now, I am
just catching exceptions that get thrown, but I was wondering if there
was another way of doing this.
