I need to edit an excel sheet that was provided to me. However the cells are locked and need a password to unlock. This file has been passed form person to person to person and no one knows the original author or password to unlock it. Is there away round this so I don't need to make a new file, because there are ALOT of formulas in this file and I'd rather not have to make a new form from scratch just to change one cell.

 

Thanks,

Unlocking Excel sheets without password if the sheets has been protected with a password, is quite difficult to do

Olá KaliBali!

Hello KaliBali!

 

Não sou usuário avançado, mas trabalho com licenciamento de soluções Microsoft há um bom tempo.

Sinto-me na obrigação de transmitir para você que quebrar uma senha de um arquivo Excel não tem a ver com boas práticas, por motivos óbvios: 1) Você está desrespeitando o direito do autor da planilha; e 2) Com uma ferramenta de quebra de senha você pode contaminar seu computador com vírus (malware, ransomware, etc...).

Aproveite a oportunidade de estar conectado à comunidade e conheça o Excel. É um software simples e poderoso. Tenho certeza que em pouco tempo, suas habilidades estarão tão aprimoradas que não terá necessidade de recorrer a quebra de senhas.

I'm not an advanced user, but I've been working with Microsoft solution licensing for a long time.

I feel compelled to convey to you that breaking a password in an Excel file is not about good practice, for obvious reasons: 1) You are disrespecting the copyright of the spreadsheet; and 2) With a password cracking tool you can infect your computer with viruses (malware, ransomware, etc ...).

Take the opportunity to be connected to the community and get to know Excel. It is a simple and powerful software. I am sure that in a short time your skills will be so enhanced that you will not need to resort to password cracking.

 

Sucesso para TODOS nós!

Success for ALL of us!
