Remove Protection permanently, Excel 2007

Experts, I have a file that does not have any pw on it but I have to continually press REVEIW < Unprotect Sheet in order to make edits to text.  After I press the Unprotect Sheet and make edits I then close the file.  I do not add any protection howefver when I open the file the protection is back and I go through the same routine.

How can I permannently remove the protection of the workbook?  
I have 2007.

thank you

Have you saved after remove the protection?

Yes, I did  save.

Save a copy of your file selecting only the restrictions you wish to have in place on the  Tools > General Options menu in the save dialog.

peeth:  I think there is a macro.

I have this:  
Private Sub Workbook_Open()

   wksSchedule.Protect UserInterfaceOnly:=True
   wksHolidays.Protect UserInterfaceOnly:=True
   wksStatus.Protect UserInterfaceOnly:=True

End Sub

I guess  I could remove it?

You can remove it or comment it out. To comment out just place an apostrophe in front of the lines of code to be ignored. After you do and move to another line the text will turn green.
