    Forgot Password for File (Word 2003)

    I have a user who cannot open a file because she forgets the password for it. I tried to use recover text from any file and was able to retrieve only a short list of web addresses she had at the end of the document. Any method to get the rest of the file?

    Thanks

    If you have Open Office, you could try opening the document there. Reputedly, it ignores document passwords.

    There are many password recovery utilities. ElcomSoft is fairly well known. (Watch out if you want to do a Google search, it's easy to end up on less wholesome sites)
