Hello, Mr. Savchu

If you are using Microsoft Excel 2003 then this is your solution.

  1. Open your file
  2. Go to Tools Menu
  3. Then Click on Option (Last one in the list)
  4. Click on Security Tab (Up Side Right Corner)
  5. Type your password in the "Password to Open Field" and Enter
  6. Re-Type your password and Enter again
  7. Save the File and Password has been created.

and if you are using Microsoft Excel 2007 then this is very simple.

  1. Click on Office Button (Up Side Left Corner)
  2. Go to "Prepare"
  3. Then Click on "Encrypt Document"
  4. Type your password and Enter
  5. Re-Type your password and Enter again
  6. Save the File and Password has been created.

To Change the Password Simply again use these process with New Password, and if you want to remove the Password then leave Blank the password field.

Thanks.
