How to unlock Excel 2013 Worksheets

Hi, I have been asked to modify the attached workbook but the first tab is locked - the creator is no longer in the company.  Can anyone help me unlock the sheet so I can edit it?  

Thanks so much

The only supported solution is copy the entire worksheet (Ctrl+Home, Ctrl-Shift-End, Ctrl-C) and paste to a new worksheet.

Cracking passwords is not something permitted on Experts-Exchange, but there are programs available on the internet that claim to be able to do it.

No you can still use the instructions provided. We just can't tell you how to crack a password or recommend anything specific that can.
