It's your turn. In this practice session you will add a password to an Excel workbook that contains private information on stocks. You'll get to explore various password options.

You'll create a strong password and will need some way of remembering it—write it down, enter it in a Word document, or just rely on your excellent memory.

Though this practice uses Excel, the password options in Word and PowerPoint work in the same way.

About the practice session

When you click Practice in Excel, a practice worksheet will download to your computer and open in Excel, and a separate window with practice instructions will appear alongside (see picture).

Note     You need to have Excel 2003 installed on your computer.

Tips

  • If the practice instructions aren't visible, or if they disappear when you click in Excel, click the Excel Help taskbar button and then click the Auto Tile button in the upper-left corner of the instructions.
  • If the practice instructions cover up Excel, click the Auto Tile button in the upper-left corner of the instructions.
