Ok, I was kind of afraid of that. It is not a big problem right now, The sheet is in progress and I can create a new one. Was hoping that there was some way around it, in case it happened in the future, but figured there probably was not. I actually do not need a password at all. Not going to put one on this time.
I usually sue EXCEL instead of openoffice, but I wanted to chance some defaults on what I am working on, and did not want those defaults changed in Excel.
