You have (for the most part) answered your own questions:

1) Sheet password.
2) Workbook password.
3) Password to Open the file
or Password to Modify the file.

I don't know if these are the "formal" names but it is what Excel calls them when you pull down the menus. No need to be shy, there are no true experts in anything!-BM
