Cannot open password protected file even though I have correct password. Get message to check that caps lock is not on. I see another poster had this exact same problem.. I created a file earlier today, password protected the file, tested the password to ensure it would open (it did), and forwarded the password protected file to a client. I tried to open the file this evening to review the file contents before forwarding the same file to legal counsel, and the password no longer works.
Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. As mentioned, you have created a PDF file, password protected the file, tested the password to ensure it would open (it did), and forwarded the password protected file to a client and now when you are trying to open the file to review the file contents the password no longer works.
Please make sure that you are using the correct password to open the PDF file. Generally it is recommended to make a note or copy and save the password to avoid any mistake when you try to open the file using the password next time.
