Password on Excel file

Ok, thanks to a numb-nuts who didn't record a password I am left with an Excel file that is password-protected. Is there anything I can do to open it?

Thanks for any help as usual...

As explained in PM, sorry it's a work file so I can't do that. Thanks for the offer though!

Re: Password on Excel file

You could try importing the file to Microsoft Access - though it may ask for the password when you try this way. If it works, just export it back to Excel.

Another option is to try the "Insert file" option in Word. But again, you may get asked for the password - it is supposed to offer some protection!

Re: Password on Excel file

I got around that once years ago.

I think I opened it in notepad or something else pretty basic as a comma seperated file. You loose all the formating and formula but get access to the basic data. You can then resave as Excel.

Re: Password on Excel file

You'd think since its password protected you wouldnt be able to crack it but hey, it is a Microsoft product

Re: Password on Excel file

Do a search. You can find files you open in excel first before you open the password protected one that will allow you to open and view the file which will enable you to copy the contents out.
