I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Do you mean a password on a sheet or on the actual Excel file you are opening?

There are free tools that you can download that will brute force crack these.  I don't remember the name of the one I used in the past, but I'll look tonight when I get some time.
