I have an application that has a password on the Excel code but the writer has left and there is NO documentation. The error i am getting suggests that there might be a problem in the code itself but I cant get at it. Has anybody got a cracker that will release or tell me the password proctecting the Excel code. Normal Excel crackers do not work. thanks

Do you mean that you have an Excel file which is password protected (the vba code ??).
