Is there any specific VBA Code that makes use of Adobe Acrobat that I could use in a MS Access application to add a password to a population of pdfs?

Is there a specific forum where something like this is addressed?  I'm able to use VBA with a reference to adobe acrobat to manipulate my PDFs as well as password protecting with other outside software applications.  For convienemce though it would be great to do it all with acrobat????

Within Acrobat you can only use JavaScript for such tasks, not VBA.
