Is there a way to open a password-protected excel file (.xlsx) in Numbers '08 v1.0.3?

And, if so, how?  I get a "cannot import" error message with no details.


I'm on OSX 10.6.8 on Mac Mini.

    You will need the password. Otherwise, you can try searching Google to see if there is a way to open a password protected Excel sheet. If you know the password, then save an unprotected version before exporting it into Numbers.

    Thanks for the quick reply.


    There doesn't appear to be any app that will open the file and allow me to enter the password.

    So I guess I'll just have to have it re-sent.
