You are trying to upload password protected file as an attachment but the error message shows: 'Password-protected office file' and uploading the file is not possible.


SAP Cloud For Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Save or create password protected file.
  2. Try to upload it into C4C system as an attachment.
  3. Error message shows: 'Password-protected office file'.


The error message is shown because the virus scan is not able to scan the file content when it is password protected and, therefore, will not allow for the file to be uploaded.

Password-protected office file is not supported as per current design.


This is expected system behavior.

In order to adjust this behavior, please remove the password protection from the file.
