    Word VBA password (Word 97 SR2)

    OK, I know this is a bit of a naughty question...

    I've been asked to re-brand some word templates for a client, written by someone long departed and protected by a long forgotten password.
    Anyone know how to crack them?

    Re: Word VBA password (Word 97 SR2)

    There are two kinds of Word passwords that can be easily removed without "cracking." The first is the kind used to Protect the document (e.g., for Forms, tracked changes). To remove this password, use Save As and choose RTF. Then close the document, then re-open the RTF file. The password should be gone. The second is the password on the VBA project. If you open the document in StarOffice 6.0/OpenOffice.org 1.0, the code is open without any password and prefixed with Rem statements. You then can clean up the statements. However, I don't know if UserForms convert that way.
