"Check out the number of Excel file crackers that are available. You'd want to use a strong password."

- Am aware of this, a strong password is being used.

"You lose accountability when there is more than one person who can view the file."

So it seems the only safe option is a baggie with a numbered seal ~ a sealed baggie for each and every critical system password, if anybody need access to a certain account and password, it is recorded in a logbook, baggie handed over, seal broken, password retrieved, new password generated, placed in baggie with new seal, and recorded in logbook...

A major schlepp, but if you're really strict about security...
