I confirm that the test file looks entirely protected in LibO 4.1.1 under Win7 64bit.

unfortunately I have no MS Excel to confirm that the .xls has just a single protected cell.

edited summary notes.

any cell looks protected in LibO 4.1.2, 4.0.4 and 3.6.7
same happens with AOO 4.0.0.

maybe an inherited from OOo issue?
Comment 3 Michel Rudelle 2013-11-23 17:17:33 UTC
I reproduce (LibO - Vista32b), unfortunately, I can't investigate further due to the existence of a password for protection
Please dear submitter, could you attach the same file with sheets protected without password.
Thank you
