    Hi Steve

    Erlandsen Data Consulting have a free add-in that will remove passwords. If it is worksheet protection then it will remove the password quite quickly but if the password is required to open the file it can take a very long time.

    Hi Steve

    Firstly make sure the add-in is running. Select "Tools>Add-ins..." and make sure "EDC Tool Template" is selected.

    This will then add a new menu item called EDC as shown in the image below from which you can select the password recovery options
