Default Removing digital signature

I saved a workbook with a digital signature, but now want to remove it so I
can edit the workbook. When I try to remove the signature, signature is
"invalid" and I get a message saying it can't be removed because workbook is
read only. Message says "to add or remove signatures, enable editing, save
changes & try again." How do I enable editing? Most of my options are greyed
out.

Default Removing digital signature

Hi,
You can remove a digital signature from a Microsoft Office document that has
been digitally signed.

Open the document that contains the signature you want to remove.
Click the Microsoft Office Button
point to Prepare, and then click View Signatures.
In the Signatures task pane, point to the signature that you want to remove,
click the arrow that appears on the right, and then click Remove Signature.
When you are asked if you want to permanently remove the signature, click
Yes.

Yes you can remove the Digital signatures from a document, when you have to remove a Digital signature from a particular office document and open the document from which the signature has to be removed and then click on the Microsoft office tools from the menu, and then click on the view signature box from the given options, from the signature in task pan check the signature you want to remove,then click the remove signature box in the right,then a dialogue box will appear asking to permanently remove the Digital Signature click yes on that.
