    Excel password

    Hi guys,

    I have a spreadsheet that is password proteted and I know the password. But for some reason when I go to tools > protection menu. I can only click on protect shared work. But the other two options I can't click are "Unprotect workbook" and "Unprotect sheet". So how can I click on thes options? Please help

    Thanks

    Are you "logged in" to the workbook?
