Check out the JXL API. It's a library for working with Excel files. I've never used it, so I can't say if it will help you out or not, but hopefully you'll find something

http://jexcelapi.sourceforge.net/

Also, for future reference, please use more descriptive title names. This is a Java forum. "JAVA" as a title does nothing for us.

Topic title changed to be more descriptive

Rule 35 of this forum that was showed to you when you posted: Give your topic a descriptive title, NOT "Help" or "Plz Help Me" or "I'm a noob"

I personaly use JExcelApi but I do not remember havin seen something about password protection into it. May be it is there but I doubt.

No; unfortunately, JExcel does not allow you to save files with password protection.
