There quite a few free tools on the web that can do this, depending on the speed of your computer/password it shouldn't take more than a few minutes to crack a protected Excel file. I used one that ran as a macro in Excel, worked every time (I should add this was to crack my own files which I had forgotten the password for )

The only easy way is to select the whole worksheet and paste this onto a blank/new workbook - this copies all the formulas etc, but will not copy any formats that include the protection.

My wife typed that ^^^

Ah, so it's something you shouldn't be looking at in the first place?

Whole new kettle of ballgames.
