Re: protected excel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
first of all what is the version of your excel sheet! try using
http://www.elcomsoft.com/AE97PR/ae97pr.zip

this is for excel 97.x

another option is by using hex editors but that one needs to know that exact
password string address.

best of luck!
