Folks,
I've been "muddling" with not much success in trying to create a macro that will allow me to:
1. Remove the password from a worksheet
2. Remove all passwords from a workbook

Glenn,
Well it worked but for the life of me I'd never have figured that out. WOW - one would think there's an easier way. But I'm grateful, regardless.

It's not supposed to be easy.  But I've used the AllInternalPasswords macro a few times myself and it's come in handy.

I realise that, but if you knew the password, the code doesn't need to be anywhere near as complicated.
