Excel password protected files

Windows 7 Professional, Excel 2007.

Password protected worksheets require a few tries to open, non passworded sheets are not affected. not sure if this is a file or program issue.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
