    How to copy Password Protected Xcel spreadsheets

    Hi there

    I need to edit a password protected xcel spreadsheet which is pretty complex and contains hidden colums. I'm running Office Professional Plus 2013.

    Any tips please???

    The obvious question: do you have the password for it? If not, can you get it? If not, you can't edit it.

    EDIT: The rest of my reply didn't make it. You can Copy the file in File Explorer using a slightly different name or same name but to a different Folder or Drive but the password bit still applies.
