Default Unable to Unprotect a 2003 .xls file

My company recently upgraded to 2007. I had a file that was protected and
only certain cells could be modified, for data entry. I now need to
manipulate the file but I am unable to unprotect the file. The “unprotect
sheet” button is not available. How do I unlock the protection?

If the file is shared you need to unshare it first as that option is not
available in shared workbooks...
