Excel 2007 Document Decryption

I have an Excel 2007 spreadsheet that at first I had encrypted.  After realizing that encryption was not necessary for this spreadsheet, I'd like to turn encryption off so that it's not prompting me for my password each time I open it.  Is it possible to remove the password prompt each time I open this spreadsheet?
