Excel Password Issue

Recommended Posts

The HR Associate forgot the password of employee contact spreadsheet and she ran out of luck for guessing out the password. She says the password is simple. Possible to brute-force it? 

It is Excel 2010

Don't run the program... Excel files (xlsx) is actually a zip archive. Simply extract the file and edit out the password. Depending on how you've encrypted it and if you are not using Encrypt with Password, then it should be all fine.

If you still can't crack the password, sent it to me and I might give it a go (only if there is no sensitive info and you don't mind).
