Locked out of Excel File
Posted on 2012-03-15
I am in a bit of a delema here. We have 3 Excel files that have been password protected so we can't open them. The issue we have is they were locked by an old employee at least 2 years ago. We have no way of contacting this old employee and no one knows the passwords to these files.
I have been able to determine that the possible protection is: MS Excel 97-2003 - Open Password, VBA Project - 40bit RC4 Encryption
Is it possible to get into these files? I don't want to buy one of the programs online that say they can do it without actually seeing it work. I also can't send the files anywhere to get it done as they have financial info in them.
Any idea's or suggestions would be great.
