Password Recovery Tool Needed for MS Office [actually just need for excel] on MAC OS X

Ethical hack - trying to recover files I generated some time ago with no hope of remembering passwords.

I'm looking for an office password recovery tool for MAC OS X.  I used to use xlkey, vbakey etc from lostpassword.com - but these are obviously PC based tools.  Does anyone know of similar software products for MAC?  I need excel, pdf, vba for the most part.

Thanks

Here's a web-based decryptor, so the OS won't change anything: http://www.decryptum.com/

Also, if you have a Windows computer handy, you could transfer the files there and decrypt them with your favorite decryptor.

Unfortunately Decryptum only recovers excel files with "open" password protection, it does not cover sheet or workbook protection.  Good site though, little on the pricey side! Cheers - Mocquery

Would prefer to find a MAC based utility but may have to revert to xlkey on PC.  If anyone can assist further, I would be grateful.
