Password protection to Excel Add-ins

hi, we've got users who have been asked to increase the security of the data they hold. They currently use Excel Add-ins, and tried putting password protection onto their spreadsheet.

However, the data uploads failed with password protection activated (even though they'd already opened the spreadsheet with the password).

We'd like this functionality to be available, so that the add-in is compatible with password protection. In theory, if a user has already opened the spreadsheet up and input the password, then it shouldn't be needed again with uploading/downloading data.

Thanks, Andrew.
