in reply to encrypt excel documents

I'd go for an external program that does the encryption. On most unices there is openssl which can do stuff like that from the commandline, but i guess your users aren't on unix (or 'kings of the commandline').

If you use email as your way of transportation of files, you could think of using PGP or GPG as a way to do public-private key encryption-type things.

[hippo]: Make it an option?
[Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
[Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
[Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
[hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
[Corion]: Talking about this makes me realize that it's likely only a half useful idea. But it still would be convenient to have as an option...
[Corion]: hippo: Hmmm - yeah, I could document it and wait for code implementing that option to show up ;-D
