Try all the passwords that you usually use.

If no luck, do a google search for excel & password - something will come up after 2 0r 3 pages.

I remember about a month or two ago a big hoopla about being able to bypass the passwords in any word document. I think it involved using a hex or binhex editor?

Basically you could edit your .doc file with it to remove the password, allowing you to open the file, go in and change what you like then close the file and use the editor to reinstate the password so know one would ever know.

Maybe you can do the same with Excel files? Have a search on the Word password thing and see what pops up.

Cant you just open the workbook with the protected sheets, and copy the contents on to a new workbook ? You should then be able to add data to it.
