Default password protect excel file?

I have an excel file which was sent to me that I need to place password protection on so it can place it accessable from within a web site. The instruction I have found say to open "Prepare" from the Select Office button, then select "Encrypt Document" to add the password. My problem is that the "Encrypt Document" selection is grayed out and inaccessable. Anyone know what is causing the gray out. I thought perhaps it is because I did not "author" the document.
Looking for help!!
Thanks

Try Click Office Button | Save as and Click Tools Button choose General

Thanks Ahmad,
I went to the office button, save as but I don't find general anywhere. I think I need to use the office button, prepare, then encrypt but encrypt is grayed out. When I try this on a document I created it is available so I think the answer is that in order to add a password I have to have created the document.
