I tryed your trick and it works.  The trick is to copy the whole spreadsheet

left corner and then use the copy comand to transfere the content into a new
I belife that trick to work for every Exel version up to office 2000 ( my
version ).   I also belife that was the intension of Microsoft althogh  I

Try highlighting the cells and copying them into a new spreadsheet.  I just
did it, so I know it works.

NO.  This is why in the latest version the dialog box that pops up for you
to reconfirm your password tells you specifically to not lose your password.
This option cannot be reversed.  Also, the password function is
case-sensitive; it does matter if you type capitals.  I found this out the
hard way when working in a previous version that did not warn me.

I protected M.S. Exel workbook or sheet some years ago and have forgotten
the password.   Can anyone tell me how to unprotect without the password.
Thank you for your help,
