When I want to open an Excel workbook that's password protected, it keeps wanting to open a "copy of ***" too - I have not changed any properties to these workbooks (*** above is the file name).  Thank you.

    Seems strange, what version of Excel are you running? And how are you trying to open the file, right-clicking the name, from the FILE option or a desktop icon or other method?

    Hi, Excel 2007, tried both right-clicking and double-clicking both in the OPEN dialog box and also from the Documents Library.  The dialog box asking for a password for the "copy" also pops up if I just click once on the file name (e.g. to copy it somewhere else).  It's very, very annoying.

    Is this the only Excel file that is doing this? It may be that the last time it was used it was not saved properly and it's trying to open the back copy as well. Do both files show up in the folder in windows explorer?

    No, but it seems to be doing it to password protected files only.

    No, only the proper file, not the "copy".
