Worksheet password not being set

I am new to setting passwords with PHPExcel. I am creating a multiple-worksheet spreadsheet. I set the password correctly on one.

But when I use the same code on another, the password is not being set.

The PHPExcel version is 1.7.6 and the PHP version is 5.4.4

Here is my code:

private function locksheet($obj){
    $obj->getActiveSheet()->getProtection()->setFormatCells(true); }

I pass $objPHPExcel to this method. Again, it works in one sheet but not another. And yes, I am setting setActiveSheetIndex between sheets.

In the second sheet, the cell-level security and validations work correctly after I manually set the password.

Any suggestions?
