I'm trying to export multiple reports to excel.  In order to save time I create the first workbook and then add the reports to the existing workbook.  For the last year I keep on getting the error "the workbook is password protected.

Can someone please help me solve this?  It's driving me nuts.  I've already moved some of my clients over to Xero

Save it as a comma delineated and it will work once you download it you can save as a workbook etc, it did the same to me with the P&L

That should work for you

SOLUTION FOUND!!  Your Excel worksheet must be in the Normal view.  If your Excel sheet is in the Page Layout view, QuickBooks for some reason recognizes that as Protected.
