  • Help for password protected excel file

    Hi All

    I m very much new to this forum

    I am seeking help regading a problem that i have with an excel file.

    I have an excel file which my friend has made a password lock to open it and all my office important data lies in it, it was a bad prank that he played on me but now he himself forgot the password.

    I have tried all software from elcomsoft,rixler etc.. etc.. but not able to recover or crack the password.

    I am using Excel 2003, is there any way to recover the password or crack it through registry editor, or any othe full version s/w that might help

    Thanks
    Joyjeet

    You could try password recovery software but if it doesnt work, you are stuck.

      try this one here, it does take a while since it tries every combination. Follow the instructions.
