Unlock a locked excel file

Hello! I need some help with unlocking a locked excel-file. I cannot seem to do it on my Mac but might be easier on a PC. I can access it but I want to edit the sheet. Maybe the easiest may to send the one that can help me is to send me your e-mail so I can send you the file. Please!! Thank you!

Locked Excel files can be unlocked just as easily on either a Mac or a PC.....if you know the password.

Obviously I don't have the password. That's what I need help with.

Perhaps you should ask the guy, who created the Password, what it is

What is a file extension? Please, if it's so simple to you guys - can you please do it for me and send it to me by e-mail or something?

I suppose that you have either Microsoft Office or LibreOffice on your Computer

You use a computer for work? How can you not know what a file extension is?

ok.... By defaults, Windows and the Mac OS do not show file extensions. To view file extensions you would first need to enable them.

I don't think that the OP has had suitable software installed on his computer
