Prior to Excel 2007, the "protection" offered by setting a password to open/modify a workbook was, well, lacking.

With Excel 2007, however, Excel starting offering the ability to encrypt files with the very strong AES-128 encryption standard.  As long as you are using a strong password, that will not be cracked.

Of course, the passwords used for protecting sheets, the workbook structure, and/or VBA projects are still laughably easy to crack.
