No way in a normal procedure ! If u set as read only when u provide password at the time of saving the file, then u may open the file as just read only mode. Else U have to download a 3rd party SW to recover ur password. The link that provides free SW: http://www.freewordexcelpassword.com/index.php?id=download
u have to need .net framework for this.
OR u may also use Password.xla to recover ur file.

    Don' worry! It is easy. If you forget excel password,the best way to solve this problem is use a recovery tool. Because the tool will not damage your file, and Microsoft has declare that her engneers will not to help people recover the data for security. You can try Excel Password Decryption 3.0,I have used it,it is easy to use and have a high speed.I would like to use it because it offers three types of attacking that can save lots of time in recovery.
