outlook .pst password

uworlds used Ask the Experts™
I am trying to import a .pst file originally stored on Windows XP, to Office 2011 for Mac but it is asking me for a password for the .pst file!   I had no idea it even had a password.   How can I import the .pst file into the Mac?   Do I have to go to Windows and Un-password protect the file somehow?  Any urgent help would be enormously appreciated!  Kind regards Mike
