I use XLS Padlock to lock a sheet, and send it offshore to colleagues that do not have XLS Padlock installed. They fill the sheet, but when they save it as a secure file, it cannot be reopened on another machine in the same network in order to QC the work (they don’t get the dialog window asking them to open the original file, last saved file or another saved file).
The .exe file is generated with the 'only on this machine" option checked off.
What is the best way forward for this?
I think I found the way to do it:
It should work, as long as you use (a copy of) the same .exe file that was used to create the saved secure file;
If the .exe file has been moved or copied to another location, you probably have to make a dummy save first before the dialog window that allows you to browse to a saved secure file opens up.
The offshore team is checking it now, will report back if this was indeed the solution.
