Hello 

 

Please i need help on this issue.

 

The newest version of Excel 16.85 is having permission issues with opening encrypted Excel files. Had to roll back to the older 16.84 version for it to work.

    Hi,

    Where did you open the Excel?

    Where did the Workbook save?

    Did this problem only appear in Excel? How about other Office products?

    I suggest you check the sign in account and check if you can open the Workbooks with account. Try to sign out and re-sign in the account.

    Just checking in to see if the information was helpful. Please let us know if you would like further assistance.
