Excel problem with password protected books.

  Noldi 18:36 13 Jul 2009

I have several sub Excel workbooks that take data from a main workbook. When I open a sub workbook I get prompted for the password of the main book, which I already open. (Password to open, password to modify)

Master file has personal data and the sub file gives me a print out of certain information without revealing all.

Before we updated to Office 2007 we used 2000 and this did not prompt for password as long as the master file was already open. Is this a set up problem or was this a weakness in Office 2000 that has now been changed.

Any thoughts we are helpful.
