That's a long discussion here https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/excel/how-to-unprotect-the-excel-sheet-if-forgot-the-password...


In general and depends on how Excel workbook is protected, the easiest way is to open it Google Sheets and save back as Excel file. It doesn't care about Excel passwords. However, it could be compatibility issues.


Please note, Excel password protection is not to secure data. It is mainly to protect data from user negligence.
