You can try the recovery services or perhaps one of the available tools to see if it works. The site below looks legitimate.

I have not used it because (a) I password very few documents and (b) I keep a record (which I recommend to everyone.

Thanks for the "tounge lashing" about passwords. The link worked. I should have researched more myself but I figured 2013 would be hard to crack.

@SamuelClemmons  - Thank you for the update and I was happy to help.

I apologize if you think I was being harsh. I keep an encrypted file of all my passwords of all kinds to ensure that I do not forget anything. So as much as anything, I was reminding myself.

No need to apologize as I was kicking myself for not doing what you do. It was my own fault it's not like I didn't know that this could happen. It was being lazy on my part. I was not offended in any way. Thanks again for the help
