"protect document" -> "restrict access" to 12000 winword/xls documents RRS feed

    Hi,

    I've posted this question to other forum and I was suggested to post it here.

    PROBLEM:
      My problem is setting "protect document" -> "restrict access" -> "Restricted Access" to up 12000 word/excel documents. (check image)

      By opening a word document and then going to "protect document" -> "restrict access" -> "Restricted Access" and checking "Restrict Permission to this Document" and then adding users in Read / Change - I'm able to choose the users that can read and change the document with ease.

      The goal is: If someone that has access to the document decides to email the document to you, I ensure that you cannot open it. That's what this is all about - It's an important goal.
    This restriction goes beyond in setting the folder permissions it's a change inside the document.

    QUESTION:
      Is there a way to have this done via PowerShell, bash, API c#?
