Recover a password to open a workbook or worksheet

Excel lets you password protect your workbooks, and your worksheets. But, it's easy to forget or misplace your passwords. Unfortunately, if that’s happened to you, we don’t have a way to help you recover a lost password.

Excel doesn't store passwords where you or Microsoft can look them up. That's also true for the other Office programs that let you protect files. That's why it's always a good idea to store your passwords someplace safe.

Some third-party companies offer programs for unlocking files. For legal reasons, we can't recommend those programs. You can try them, but at your own risk.
