Hi Sreenivas!

The following sites advertise ability to recover, amongst other
things, Excel file passwords. These passwords are imposed when saving
Excel files and are not to be confused with *internal* passwords on
sheets and workbook structure.



http://www.intertek.org.uk/
Excel Workbook recovery. Demo version up to 2 characters free. Full
version
for $5 advertises ability to recover any password.

Elcomsoft Advanced Office XP Password Recovery
http://www.elcomsoft.com/aoxppr.html
Unregistered (trial) version can be used during 30 days after
installation (although it doesn't expire, actually) and has some
limitations. They have programs for earlier versions. Cost of license
$30. Reported to take a long time but worked in finding a 12 character
lower case password. Like most brute force approaches the fastest CPU
speed computer available should be used.

Lostpassword.Com
http://www.lostpassword.com/excel.htm
All versions of MS Excel are supported (including Excel 2002) $45.
Download demo version covers 2 character passwords and works but not
much use. The licensed version covers passwords up to 9 characters.
They do have a 4-7 day guaranteed decryption service for a fee!



Reported to work quickly with Excel 2000.

Hi Tim!

Thanks for that. I'll add it to the list. Only reservation is that it
isn't free. But if it saves a few hundred hours or recovers important
data, who cares?

Yes, this tool uses a simple VBA program to find the password to open
an MS Excel file:
