EE Professionals,

I have a very old(pre-Excel 2000) Excel Spreadsheet that I am trying to get access to the VBA Project Code Level to help the original owner (now over 80 years old), reconstruct the code (it is a non-commercial application).  Unfortunately, he has forgotten the VBA Password he used many years ago and in trying to help him recover it I have gotten advice from EE in the past about a Hexcode level Password access.  I tried it and it did give us access to the sheet but not the the VBA Project Level.  I have saved the original WB into an XLSM file.  Now, I'm investigating a program called;

and was wondering if anyone has experience using the Standard Version (on a single PC).  I just need this for a single file but given the importance of the program, I'm willing to spend the $100 if it works.  The company is Russian and offers no phone number to get actual questions answered.

Any help or ideas on this would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

B.
