Remove password on your Excel document
Here is a program that can remove/delete code-protected documents in Microsoft Office Excel. It is an add-in which gives you 2 additional menu items in the ”features” menu, with the option to remove/delete the code. Unfortunately I have only had the opportunity to test it with Excel 2003, so do not know if it works for earlier version or newer (Excel 2000,2007). Do you need to open Excel files on a computer without Office? No problem: Download the freeware program Office Excel Viewer.
Download the program / add-in here: Excel Password Remover
- This won’t remove the code if you can’t see the contents of the document at all. That is, if it asks for the code before opening the document itself.
- If you can open the Excel file, but cannot change it (because it is password protected), you can use this add-in to remove the code.
