Setting and removing a password requirement
You can use the Backstage view options to set permissions on a i le so that anyone opening
it needs a password. This is helpful if you are sending out a i le containing sensitive data
for review and want only certain individuals to have access to it. You can also remove the
password requirement when you no longer need it.
To set a password requirement:
Click File > Info > Protect Workbook > Encrypt with Password. The Encrypt
Document dialog box is displayed.
Enter a password in the dialog box.
Type myword in the Password box, and click OK.
Retype myword to coni rm the password, and click OK.
A password is now required to open the workbook.
