    How do I crack a password in excel? There are loads of programmes on the WWW that come up when I google this however I’m afraid of downloading an .exe file that might be virus/spy/etc.

    easiest way to crack the password, is to find the owner and ask them.

    sounds a fair swap. How many rocks?

    Like Stoner says, there’s some VBA code that you stick in a button that tries every possible combination to get the password. (The password you type is converted to a much shorter string of text, so it doesn’t take long.)

    Have you tried ‘password’ or ‘letmein’

    sorry cant find it. Just go and download it yourself and if your nervous run it on a quarantined computer.

    it used to work, although several emailings may have changed the layout a bit.

    Sub PasswordBreaker()

    Dim i As Integer, j As Integer, k As Integer
    Dim l As Integer, m As Integer, n As Integer
    Dim i1 As Integer, i2 As Integer, i3 As Integer
    Dim i4 As Integer, i5 As Integer, i6 As Integer
    On Error Resume Next
    For i = 65 To 66: For j = 65 To 66: For k = 65 To 66
    For l = 65 To 66: For m = 65 To 66: For i1 = 65 To 66
    For i2 = 65 To 66: For i3 = 65 To 66: For i4 = 65 To 66
    For i5 = 65 To 66: For i6 = 65 To 66: For n = 32 To 126

    ActiveSheet.Unprotect Chr(i) & Chr(j) & Chr(k) & _
    Chr(l) & Chr(m) & Chr(i1) & Chr(i2) & Chr(i3) & _
    Chr(i4) & Chr(i5) & Chr(i6) & Chr(n)
    If ActiveSheet.ProtectContents = False Then
    MsgBox “One usable password is ” & Chr(i) & Chr(j) & _
    Chr(k) & Chr(l) & Chr(m) & Chr(i1) & Chr(i2) & _
    Chr(i3) & Chr(i4) & Chr(i5) & Chr(i6) & Chr(n)
    ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(1).Select
    Range(“a1”).FormulaR1C1 = Chr(i) & Chr(j) & _
    Chr(k) & Chr(l) & Chr(m) & Chr(i1) & Chr(i2) & _
    Chr(i3) & Chr(i4) & Chr(i5) & Chr(i6) & Chr(n)
    Exit Sub
    End If
    Next: Next: Next: Next: Next: Next
    Next: Next: Next: Next: Next: Next

    End Sub

    ——————————————-

    Then run it when the protected worksheet is selected
    (Tools-Macro-Macros). This should unprotect any
    protected worksheet.

    seems odd that it doesn’t punt you back to the main forum page any more when you’ve posted, anyway.

    that didnt work. The file is locked so that VBA cannot be used (not that I’d know how to use it)

    Download OpenOffice from here install and load the spreadsheet – this has allowed me to edit a password protected spreadsheet in the past.

    i wonder if those “_” are supposed to be there, maybe emailing that’s added them, would probably make more sense.
