Default Password Protection

How do I prevent a workbook from being opened until a password is entered. I
have tried the ToolsProtectionProtect SheetProtect Workbook and Protect
and Share Workbook. But each time I save and close the workbook, I can open
it without entering a password.

TIA!

File Save as ,
in the 'Save as' dialogue box, click on 'Tools'
Click on 'General Options', and enter a password.

Hope this is what you are looking for.

Beware! Passwords can be cracked VERY easily so should not be relied upon
as a security feature.
