Opening protected workbooks

As part of testing my current project several users supplied workbooks that they currently use.

Most of these were ok, and the component did it’s thing very well.

However, some of the workbooks had protection by password, and the component completely failed to open them.

I understand that there have been questions on this before, and I was wondering if you have had a chance to look into the issue and were in a position to estimate when this facility would be available.



Hi Alan,

We have investigated this feature before but unfortunately we still don’t have a plan for this feature. The encrypt/decrypt algorithm under protected workbooks is unclear to us because of lack of documentation.
