I have a few older versions of excel documents which are still being used and are password protected, similar to a pdf file document that is password protected. I did not create the protected files, just know the password. I now have Excel 16 and have tried to password protect newer files and have not been able to figure out how.  Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.
