Under the "Review" Tab there is a section called "Protect". You may remove the workbook protection here.
The protection of the workbook is not made with rewiew, procetc, its made in archive and info (se attached image). How do I undo that protection? Its the whole workbook that is looked, not just the work sheet or work book strukture. thanks!
Go into File, Info, Protect Workbook, and Encrypt with Password. If you have not already, type in the password. Click Protect Workbook and Encrypt with Password again. Delete the password and click OK. This will remove the Encryption of the entire workbook.
