Excel Macro password hack needed

We had an employee leave the company and who we now find has password protected write access to several macros in an important spreadsheet.

When I try to edit the macro normally, I can select the Macro, but all options are then greyed out except the ability to run it. We need to edit it.

I tried to save the spreadsheet to Excel 95 version, but it won't let me with a "VBA Project password protected".

Is there any way to defeat the Excel Macro Password in the Visual Basic Editor?

Thanks,
Chuck

Go to any search engine, like www.google.com and give Excel password recovery as keywords. The choice is yours.

Ah...put VBA into the search too.

This seems to be capable, never tried it though

If the work was done with Excel 97 there is a free tool. See VBAKEY from Pathologist under http://www.password-crackers.com/crack1.html
