Excel password problem

I need to find out a password on an Excel file but I have forgotten it.  I know it's a bit naughty but does anybody know if there is a way round it or how to find out the password

There are some Password crackers on the net. The big trouble with the ones that I found is they cost money(25$ up to185$). You can try to search for EXCEL and PASSWORD.

Before doing so, if I was you, I would seek on this site because this question has already been answered some weeks ago.

You can try this one. It's for free:

As you didn't mention Excel version you'll have to try. I think it works fine for Excel 5

Here are two options  (but, they are not free):

http://www.accessdata.com/excelprd.html  ($ 169.00)

or

http://www.crak.com/download.htm  ($ 185.00)

I think this answer is right, dispite of the costs of the solution. I couldn't find anything else for free...

Yes you are right.  The so called cracks don't work on my file so I may have to purchase something.

Thanks for the help.
