Click the Tools button in the Save As dialog box and then choose General Options from its drop-down menu.

Doing this opens the General Options dialog box, where you can enter a password to open and/or a password to modify in the File Sharing section. Your password can be as long as 255 characters, consisting of a combination of letters and numbers with spaces.
