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

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.

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...
