SharePoint 2010 removing required document properties from structure protected Excel 2010 workbook

I have an Excel workbook created in Excel 2010. When I upload documents to SharePoint for my company it automatically populates document properties for the organization.
I have a workbook that I have password protected from opening and also added Structure protection to. When I added the structure protection and closed out it deleted the default document properties that SharePoint requires and therefore leaves the workbook checked out to me until I re-add the properties and check it back in.

What is causing it to remove the properties and how do I rectify this so it stops happening?

Do you have "Remove personal information from file properties on save" checked? If so, then clear it.
Excel default - Remove personal information from file properties on save> "What is causing it to remove the properties and how do I rectify this so it stops happening?"
Maybe what you are being given is a copy made by putting sheets in a new workbook and that is why property settings aren't transferring ... hard to guess.

@crystal I did check that option and it is NOT turned on. That was the only thing I could think of that would cause that to happen but that is not the case. Thank you for the suggestion.

I did check on the file itself, not just Excel. That is the first thing I checked when things started to go wrong and that feature is not checked on that Excel workbook.

the only reason I ask is because (just today!) I discovered that option was set after opening a workbook I created several months ago.  I have turned it off since then.  Today, it was back on!
