    Prevent users from changing the password

    I have a file that is on a shared drive that multiple users use. The file is
    not saved as a shared workbook. The file is password protected and all users
    know the password. Is there a way to prevent users from changing the password
    when they are re-protecting the workbook after they have made changes?

    I also have found that if I protect a workbook some one who has the password
    can then protect and share the work book putting a new password over mine
    thus not allowing me to edit the workbook. Is there any way to restrict users
    from doing this?

    No but what do you mean 're-protecting'? They just have to do a quick
    Ctrl-s to save not go through the whole protect procedure again. The
    password sticks until changed.
