Java

Java gurus out there. I need to write a Java class to bypass password protection for excel files. We can write a VB script but I need it in Java. We can also disable that feature but we want to automate this process.

Hi Superfly07,

By "bypass password protection" do you mean you want to automatically enter the (known) file password? If so then do you want Java or Javascript (sorry, can't tell which zone this is posted in since it looks like Excel to me).

If you want to actually ignore password protection on a file, I'm pretty sure you won't be able to achieve that.

Cheers,
MalicUK.

I have the password given by clients. I need to create a Java class with known passwords to automate this process.

Ahh apologies. A problem with the multiple topic area cross-posting - I know nothing of Java ;)

Good luck,

I looks like you can open these files using JexcelAPI. I'm assuming that these files are read/write password protected. If it was just write protected, you would have an easier job.
