It sounds like the locked spreadsheet is demo only showing what it looks like. If purchased, I assume the spreadsheet author would have sent a password/unlock key or something of this sort. Since this was not done, it appears that someone is trying to get something for free.

I have small free standing platform. I found an Excel sheet to calculate seismic base shear base on IBC 2003, chapter 9. But some one installed a lock. Therefore, no change or edit is allowed even the text.
Can some one share an Excel copy that not lock.
