You'll have to download a program that will try and extract the password from the excel file. Passware is the best one I can think of, and can be found at (http://www.lostpassword.com/office.htm). It's a little pricey, but it's the best one i've found, and always gets it right the first time. I think the cost is about $125.00. I can't think of any free ones available.

How to password protect Microsoft Office Excel 2003


Excel, a part of the Microsoft Office suit, offer password protect feature to prevent unauthorized users from viewing or modifying a *.xls (Microsoft Excel) file data, we can password protect MS Excel 2003 files so that only certain people can control the information.

Before Excel 2003 password protecting, here are a couple of notes:

1. Before password-protecting a workbook or worksheet, you have to consider writing down the password and keep it secure. That way, if you lose or forgot the Excel password, it will be easier to recover the information.
2. Excel has two types of password. One is "password to open" and the other one is "password to modify". You can password-protect the worksheet against modifications so that give some people read-only access to a workbook, or you can password-protect the workbook against opening an entire workbook of multiple worksheets.
3. Microsoft Excel supports several types of encryption settings, including Microsoft Base Cryptographic Provider V1.0, Microsoft DH Schnabel Cryptographic Provider, Microsoft Strong Cryptographic Provider, and more. However, password protecting an Excel file does not 100% guarantee that the password can not be decrypted or the password hacked. You can learn more about how to recover Excel password from SmartKey official site.

How to protect MS Excel file using password?


In Microsoft Excel, you can protect a single cell, group of cells on a worksheet or an entire workbook by applying password so that unauthorized person can not display as well as modify your document. You can apply two types of password.
Password to open the document:
If it is applied then you have to give the correct password to open the workbook. Otherwise you cannot open the workbook.
Password to modify the document:
If it is applied then you have to give the correct password to modify the workbook. Otherwise your workbook is opened but you cannot modify the workbook. It means that your workbook becomes read-only.
To apply a password to MS Excel document, follow the given steps:
First click on "Tools" menu and select the "Option" from drop down menu.
A windows dialog box will appear, here select the "Security" tab.
Enter first password in "Password to open" text box under "File encryption settings for this workbook" section and second password in "Password to modify" text box (if required) under" File sharing settings for the workbook" section then click "Ok" button of dialog box.

Forgot password to open Excel sheet


If you mean that you can open the Workbook and read the Worksheet - then all you have to do is select all and paste it to another Worksheet. This will allow for changes of formulas etc.

If you mean the whole Workbook - then I dunno.

In future, either use the same password for everything (easy to remember) or Protect the work with nothing entered into the password field (leave this blank). This last will protect the work from people who try to guess your password, but will be easy for you to remember - eg every password is left blank.

If you must use unique passwords, then keep a record of them somewhere other than on your computer.

Sorry I can't help with the "Workbook" solution - but somebody else out ther may be able to do so.
