Not Able to Access VBA Excel Document

Our company has got a project and we have to complete it by this week. But, the VBA .xla file given by our client is password protected. We asked him about it but, he didn't remember that. Is there any solution, whether manual or automated, to crack the password and open .xla VBA Document?

Hey Alphy,

To assist you with a better solution, can you please tell us that which version of Excel are you using? Also, give the screenshot or if you can tell what error are you getting while opening the VBA file?

Hello Jessica,

 I am using MS Excel 2007 version of Windows 10. I haven't taken the screenshots, it is just asking for password while opening the VBA file.
Please suggest me a solution to resolve it.

Thanks in advance

Get the client to send you an unprotected version.  The password is there for a reason.  I don't know if there are any legitimate companies that will crack this for you.

Hello Alphy,

According to me, you should go for a third-party application to recover VBA Project Excel password. I can even suggest you one of the best software i.e. VBA Password Remover which helps a user to remove VBA password from .xlsm file in a hassle-free way.
I have an informative article describing the manual solution using Hex Editor, read and implement the steps carefully:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/31060/Unlock-VBA-Project-Password-Excel-2010-2013-Solutions-to-Recover.html

This will surely help you to recover VBA Password from MS Excel file.

Best Regards,
Jessica
