I am trying to load and xls file into Quattro Pro X3.  Get message that file is encrypted and it will not open.  Do you have any suggestions as to how I can do this?

Thanks.

In Quattro's Help, it does say that opening Excel spreadsheets protected by a Password is not supported.  You will need to save the spreadsheet using Excel without the Password.

Dumb Question:  If a file is encrypted does that mean it is password protected?

I downloaded this file from a website and that worked fine.  If being encrypted means password protected then I know what I have to do.  Thanks.

Yes: encrypted in this particular case means password protected.  The error message should really explain this, but hey this is software so is exempt from the normal rules of clarity.
