It sounds like it is file - specific then since nothing else wants a password.

I have used passwords in calc before to prevent other people from accessing secure files. When you go to File / Save As/ look at the bottom - is the box checked that says to save it with a password?

If yes and you don't know the password simply save a new copy of it without that box selected. I don't think lost passwords can be recovered - you just have to save a copy.

Hope this helps.
