I also want this feature.

Will be the following classes of OpenXML.

Thank you.

I'd really like this feature too. Is there any chance it could get bumped up the TODO list?

Is this a complicated feature to implement, is that why it hasn't been done already?

The latest code adds simple workbook protection (no password).

Excellent, thanks for that. Are there any plans for a new release (i.e. 0.74)?

And how about password protected workbook protection, is it being worked on, or are there no current plans to do so?

Thanks again!
