Reading a excel with password protected sheet. While saving workbook password no longer stays

Here I am opening an excel file. Excel has a sheet which is protected with a password.
myWorkBook = New Aspose.Cells.WorkbookDesigner
myWorkBook.Workbook = New Aspose.Cells.Workbook(inFileName)

After saving the sheet the worksheet remains protected but the password is lost and the sheet now can be modified without a password.


Thanks for sharing the details and code segment.

Could you provide your input and output files, we will check your issue soon. Also provide us your password which you used to protect the worksheet.

Thank you.
Password : 1235

inFileName - ysr_sstest
outFileName - niraj_sstest_0 (10)
