With your permission, if I can recommend you, always add specific information about your Excel version and operating system to your concerns, as well as, if possible or necessary, a file (without sensitive data). In this way, you will come up with a proposed solution much faster and more precisely. This also makes it much easier for the helpers to provide the help that they would like to offer you. It helps both :).

 

Nevertheless, here I have prepared some links for you that might help you.

First of all, there is no reset button for removing the password, but the password can be canceled exactly as it was entered.

 

Here are the links ...

 

Workbook passwords can be changed or removed by anyone who knows the current password.

Change or remove workbook passwords

Or

How to Remove a Password in Excel 2016

When You Know the Password

You have protected your Excel file with the password, and you need to remove it before you hand in the document. You remember the password, but you don’t know how to remove it.

 

Thank you for your understanding

 

I would be happy to welcome you to this forum with a new question also in the future.
