Hi Angie!

Here's a standard collation of password recovery facilities.

You need SECTION 2. Please report back your success / failures with
commercial products as these comments will help others.

Please note that unauthorized use of password recovery techniques can

breach
software license agreements and leave you without otherwise available
assistance and remedies. You may also be liable to being sued or even
prosecuted under the terms of the software license. You can in some cases

be
in breach of terms of your employment and find yourself out on the street.
You are warned that civil and criminal proceedings risks should not be
viewed lightly. If in any doubt, don't. Most, if not all software

providers,
will assist genuine cases by email free of charge.

Anyone who has comments or sites to add please feel free to respond.

Obviously, this post comes with a complete money back guarantee. (You paid
none; you'll get none back!)

The real lessons to be learned? Keep a track of your passwords. Look after
your employees and they'll not leave without telling you the passwords!
Excel is not, and has never been made out to be secure as a mode of

storing
data.


SECTION 1 For Worksheet and Workbook (*Not* Protected (Un-openable)

files).

http://www.straxx.com/excel/password.html
Free of charge but requests a donation. Excel 5.0 up to XP. They've been
going for years and it does reveal *a* password rather than *the* password


For Worksheet passwords up to 12 characters, the following code usually
works:

Sub PasswordBreaker()
'by Bob McCormick on NG: microsoft.public.excel.misc on 22 May 2001.

'Breaks worksheet password protection.
Dim i As Integer, j As Integer, k As Integer
Dim l As Integer, m As Integer, n As Integer
Dim i1 As Integer, i2 As Integer, i3 As Integer
Dim i4 As Integer, i5 As Integer, i6 As Integer

On Error Resume Next
For i = 65 To 66: For j = 65 To 66: For k = 65 To 66
For l = 65 To 66: For m = 65 To 66: For i1 = 65 To 66
For i2 = 65 To 66: For i3 = 65 To 66: For i4 = 65 To 66
For i5 = 65 To 66: For i6 = 65 To 66: For n = 32 To 126
ActiveSheet.Unprotect Chr(i) & Chr(j) & Chr(k) & _
Chr(l) & Chr(m) & Chr(i1) & Chr(i2) & Chr(i3) _
& Chr(i4) & Chr(i5) & Chr(i6) & Chr(n)

I have a workbook that I only use once a year and I have
tried every password I can think of to get back into it.
I consulted my excel bible and it wasn't very helpful.
How on earth do I go about getting into this workbook
without the password??
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
