Hi Phil,

It sounds like the document was saved with a "file sharing password".
When the document is loaded, look for the "edit file" icon on the
toolbar.  If you click that it will prompt you for the password and
then switch into edit mode.

But note that it is not typical to use the "file sharing password"
feature.  If you don't want the read-only behavior you should just
save with the "file encryption" password/
