Hello,

Sadly my father has recently died and I am trying to help his accountant collect his records.  He had some passwords on some excel files on his work computer that I haven't been able to guess.  

Any tips on how to remove these?

The file type is- Microsoft Excel 97-2003 Worksheet

 

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks

@calumt31 You can try various Excel Password Remover both online/offline these are free as well as paid versions. Based on password complexity your file may get decrypted. It require money and time as well. 

 

It is better to check and try the passwords which your dad generally uses, if possible.
