Aspose fails to open Excel Workbook protected through code

Hi Laurence,

We have got a excel workbook, that fails to open through Aspose.Excel. The error thrown is
"Currently, Worksheets protected by password is not supported."

However, if we save the XLS once after opening it from MS-Excel it works properly.

Remember, we had corresponded before on this issue. The workbooks in our case are protected through script, when it is launched from MS-Excel and again unprotected on close.

We are using Aspose.Excel v1.7.8.0. I have checked with too. The same error comes up. Can you please take a look.

I am sending the XLS file attached with a separate mail.

Thanks in advance,


Sorry Laurence,

We have found the real reason behind the issue.
