Excel spreadsheet password

User put a hard password on an excel spreadsheet.  Office 2003 I think.
Users says it started with numbers or symbols and then had about 10 upper and lower case.
Tried a program called passware but it ran for 20 hours going through all the letters but I know the password starts with numbers or symbols.  Any help is appreciated.
