The password for MiniMall is clearly the same no matter what line is used. Ever heard of Cipher Block Chaining? Look it up. It would nearly eliminate the possibility of two lines being the same even with the same password.

We would like to prevent someone FORGETING to encrypt the cells after they finished working with the document. Is it possible to get cells automatically encrypted once document is closed.
