There is a file called 'XLQUERY.XLA' placed in my VisualBasic for Applications (Excel) project. How can I remove this file? It is protected with a password.
"The file is a sort of convertor for Excel 5.0 or so."

Thanxs,

With the Microsoft Query add-in (Xlquery.xla) you can bring data directly
from an external data source into Microsoft Excel. This add-in uses Dynamic
Data Exchange (DDE) with Microsoft Query to allow you to interactively
create a query for your external data. You can even the record a macro that
retrieves external data using this add-in. To use this add-in, click Add-
Ins on the Tools menu and select the MS Query Add-In check box.

Try to boot up your system in DOS mode, then goto the directory where the file located, then type attrib -r -s -a -h Xlquery.xla.
After all type del Xlquery.xla, the file  should be gone.
