I am trying to open and unprotect an excel from Access, I have the following code which opens the file but I am not able to unprotect once it is open.  Could you help me to fix it?  It would be fantastic if I could unprotect/protect without opening the file.

    Dim xlAp As Excel.Application
    Dim xlWB As Excel.Workbook
    Set xlApp = New Excel.Application
    With xlApp
         .Visible = True
         Set xlWB = .Workbooks.Open("C:\WFReports_CG.xls", , False)
         Set xlWB = .ThisWorkbook.UnProtect("101112131415161718191a1b1c")
    End With

    Dim xlWB As Excel.Workbook
    Set xlApp = New Excel.Application
    With xlApp
         .Visible = True
         Set xlWB = .Workbooks.Open("C:\WFReports_CG.xls", , False)
         .ActiveWorkbook.UnProtect ("101112131415161718191a1b1c")
    End With

You cannot unprotect the workbook or individual worksheets unless you first open the workbook.
