Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Start Excel then click File>Info>Protect Workbook>Permissions>Encrypt with Password.

Delete the password already entered and click OK to remove the encryption.

If you are on a domain, you will need to contact your system administrator to see what restrictions have been placed on your account.

Hi dear all,

Have been facing the same issue for 2 days...
I finally found out how to fix it!!

Just setup windows compatibility pack EVEN IF you have Microsoft Office 2007 installed on your system. (Download Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint File Formats from Official Microsoft Download Center)

I guess compatibility pack probably additionnal function that not comes with standard Microsoft Office 2007 setup.

It works!!!

Hope that will help people http://images.designermediacdn.com/ima...es/biggrin.gif
