    Follow the below method:
    • In Excel, click on the Office Button
    • Click the Excel Options button
    • Click Advanced Options
    • In the general category, remove the check "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange DDE"

    You can only encrypt a file in Excel by providing the password to the file. You only need the password for the Excel file and it will be decrypted. This feature is only supported by Microsoft Excel and not just by OpenOffice. If you want to encrypt the files necessarily, you could use other methods.
