Hi,

If this file is from another source, its best to contact them directly to obtain the password.

Well it is little bit tricky. To cut the long story short. Guy left the company and he pretty much left everything. Lets just say he was in hurry. I don't know reason. However he left few Excel spreadsheets password protected.
I would like to open them.

Hi,

The forum rules don't encourage us to directly help circumvent security on systems/networks etc. However, there are free applications out there (a Google search perhaps) that may be able to help you : I have seen very mixed results so test carefully.

If you are lucky, there might be soemthing in this list, but I can't guarantee that:

FREE Great Programs for Windows 7

Good luck,

I understand. I have already tried few of them but they are rather slow.
I will search again with more effort.
Thanks mate.
