Linking XLS PADLOCK Protected Workbook to MS Access Database


#1

I have tried xls padlock and i am impressed with it features and values one can derive from it. However I am still having issues with linking the workbook protected by xls padlock with MS Access Database to generate report. I have been doing with the unprotected workbooks without any problem but now it is giving error message that the file is not in expected format.

I will appreciate productive assistance in this regard.

Thank you.

Do you mean Access can’t have access to the protected workbook? Have you checked the option in XLS Padlock to prevent loading/saving other workbooks?
