Hello all,

I have an Excel.xlsx file that I created back in 2016 and I locked the darn thing with a password. After 2 days of going over old passwords, I managed to remember the password and I got the darn thing opened but every time I save or close the workbook when I reopen it, it is asking me for the password again.

This is not a sheet protection password and I am pretty sure it is not a VBA password as I have looked and there is no macro or VBA in the workbook hence the xlsx extension.

I am the one who protected it, I just don't remember how to remove it.

Sucks getting old.

Thanks

So you worked out it was a workbook password, not a sheet ?

Yes, I knew it was a workbook (pretty sure anyway) just could not remember where the toggle on toggle off was located.. found it under file/info....

Thanks Michael
