Forgotten password in MS Word 97

I created a short list of passwords and saved in a Word 97 doc file and password protected the file. I've forgotten the password. How can I retrieve this file?

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.

I know two companies doing crackers for these type of files:

http://www.accessdata.com/

and

http://www.crak.com/

Both companies say that they are able to crack password up to version 7 (and Word 97 is version 8 I believe)
