When you password protect an Excel file, you will be asked 2 passwords. 1, a mandatory password, to open the file. The second, an optional, is the password to allow users to modify your file. If the second one is supplied, the user who opens the file but doesn't know the password can opt to view the file in Read Only instead. However, if you do not supply the 2nd password, users will not be given the chance to view the file even in Read Only.
