That's the point of the feature. 

 

Intuit has stated it is their legal responsibility to save you from yourself, to force you to use a strong password when your file contains sensitive information.  I think this is likely a gross misinterpretation of some US Federal regulation, but no one at Intuit seems interested in reviewing the feature.

Thank you for your response.  So, I have no choice.  If I want to open my company file again I must create a password first.  Is that right?

 

Much appreciated.
