Is there a way, in VBA, to uncheck the Attributes for an excel  file  ?
specifically   "encrypt contents to secure data"
through code ?

Thanks

Within Excel, with the specific document open

ActiveDocument.Unprotect Password:="pwd"

Within Access, well you'd have to automate Excel, open the file, and send that command to the Workbook object corresponding to the file you just opened.
