Syncing Excel prevents changing spreadsheet

    I have created a spreadsheet in XP Pro using Excel 2007. I placed it in my
    ActiveSync folder to be synchronized to my smartphone using ActiveSync 4.5.
    When it is copied to my smartphone I open it with Excel Mobile 6.1, and get
    the message "This document is protected or marked read-only. You will not be
    able to edit this document." I have repeatedly marked the spreadsheet
    unprotected (in Windows), and have unlocked all cells. There are two
    worksheets in the workbook, and I have done this to both worksheets. I have
    repeatedly synced the unprotected workbook, and have shut off and rebooted
    my phone.

    I cannot find any menu items in Excel about marking it read-only, but when I
    select Properties in Windows Explorer it says it is not read-only.

    How do I make my spreadsheet usable on my phone?
