Perhaps this related post will help:

The password protection may not be mentioned there, but perhaps in the mentioned example there is a place to work with passwords.

As of my understanding, not possible to parse the password protected files through MSOParseExcel activity.

Usually many people use VBA code methods, although sometimes it seems cumbersome. I like to use an easier way to copy and paste and upload to Google Sheets to unprotect Excel.
