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.

I lost my password for the ms excel file that i created 2 months back. how should i open it now.


Hello,

While we do not give information for unlocking software due to copyright infringement, this is an altogether different matter. You have locked a document you previously created and forgot the password. There are fortunately quite a few programs to effectively retrieve your password for you, though I will provide you a link to one that I have used before, so you know it will work and is virus-free. You need to have Microsoft .net framework installed on your computer, though the .net (dot net) framework free download is software from Microsoft and is also quite safe. It is already installed on many computers for a variety of reasons. You can find the password retreiver here: http://www.freewordexcelpassword.com/downloads/FreeWordExcelpasswordrecoverywizard.zip

and it a compressed (zip) file. If you have any other questions, please dont hesitate to contact us again.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.
