The idea of a password encripted file of any kind is that it is as difficult to 'crack' as possible. There are bits of software out there which use dictionaries or variations on words you provide to attempt decryption but unless you have any clue what the word may be or it is one of the 100000 words it has on hand then it wont work. Encryption algorithms really are that good now that a Good password is the best security there is - even from yourself in cases like this!

Sorry it's not much help but you live and learn. Always keep a record of your passwords somewhere safer than on a computer, written down and hidden from obvious view.

All the best

Forget the password for the excel sheet


I assume that its a very important file. There are a lot of utilities that allow you to retrieve the password from Microsoft Office files. One that I would recommend based on my personal experience is "Advanced Office Password Recovery" a.k.a. AOPR. I have used the program and its amazing, especially with Excel as you dont have to use Brute Force (mumbo jumbo in password retrieval world) to retrieve the password.
