I have the password for the document and would like to remove it. How do I do this?

Most boxes are grayed out, when trying to remove.

1.  On the Review tab, in the Changes group, click Unprotect Sheet.
      Note  The Protect Sheet option changes to Unprotect Sheet when a worksheet is    
      protected.
2.   If prompted, type the password to unprotect the worksheet.
