To VoG™ and all that could perhaps help. At work, I have been tasked with rejuvenating / reinventing a complex scheduling system created a few years ago by another employee. This employee has now left the company and has taken known passwords with him. The workbook / worksheets can be opened without a password, but elements of the worksheets are protected against change / update. I can use one of many online tools to remove the passwords entirely, but the workbook has been really well set up; it would take me ages to replicate the protect / unprotect settings on each of the many sheets in use. Complex macros make starting from scratch out of the question. So my question is simply, is there a piece of Freeware that will recover rather than remove the associated password(s)? Thanks. Stuart.
Fruit Bat - I have seen this program before and whilst it suggests that it will do just what I want, it is in fact only the demo version that returns no detail. To register the software there is a fee of $89.
VoG - Thanks for the pointer. Again, this is something I have seen before. This software strips out password protection. What I am after is a recovery tool rather than removal, though.
