Which Android office app can open a protected Excel sheet?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have a number of password-protected Excel workbooks (saved in 97-2003 format) in my Dropbox.

    I can open these workbooks on my Samsung Galaxy S2 using the bundled Polaris office suite but, exasperatingly, I can't seem to find an office app that will open the sheets on other Android devices (Polaris Office is only available as OEM on some telephones, and is not available for other devices). I've tried a couple of recommended paid apps, such as Quickoffice Pro HD, but these cannot open password-protected workbooks. Problem is that the reviews never seem to mention this compatibility issue, and I'm reluctant to waste money on buying more apps on the off-chance that they work.

    Anyone know of an app that will definitely open a password-protected Excel workbook?

  2. Why can't you use Polaris to save them as non-passworded files?

  3. Because I actually want to keep the password protection.
