    Forgot password to unlock spreadsheet (Excel XP version)

    Here at work we have a spreadsheet that is locked up with a password. The individual who has the password is unable to remember what it is....how can we either determine what the password might be to unlock the spreadsheet,OR how can we simply unlock it to gain access to it without the password ...thanks in advance...John

    Hi John

    A google search for "unlock password protected spreadsheet" will bring up a number of tools to unlock spreadsheets. I haven't used any of them so can't make a recommendation one way or the other.

    If you are only looking to unlock a particular worksheet, you can use the code at <post#=139613>post 139613</post#>. If you are looking at unlocking an entire workbook, then you need the Google Search suggested by <!profile=Karen>Karen<!/profile>. HTH
