    Remove protection from workbook (2007)

    I have a spreadsheet which was originally created in Excel 2003 and protected with a password. I saved a copy as a .xlsx document and made a number of changes. My problem is that I cannot remove the password protection. On the review tab, protect workbook shows unrestricted access, but the password is still required upon opening the document. Does anyone know how I can remove the password protection? I'd rather not have to copy everything onto a new workbook.

    Thank you,
    DeNae

    You could try saving the workbook as an Excel 97-2003 workbook (*.xls) again and see if you can remove the password then.
