Password protocol policy recommendations....

hi Folks
Been asked for some advice about password protocols for an accounting organisations - essentially they want some guidelines on the most effective way for passwords to be set up and used for Excel files - particularly ones that have been closed off for year end.  It would be around ways to set up/store passwords - we all know the horror stories of people who password protected their Excel files and then left on bad terms (without telling anyone the passwords........) . Most of these would not be power users so it's more around ways to have a consistent policy. Thanks.

@Patricksr1972 - the article you have sent...that's exactly what I'm looking for :-) Because my own personal belief is that if someone really really wants to password protect their files so that no one else can use them and they want to make life difficult for their (previous!) employer...they will find a way. Thank you :-)
