I’m in a bit of a pickle. One of our less capable clients managed to password-protect on excel file by accident. Of course, he doesn’t know what he did or what the password could be. The password login occurs after Excel opens but before any of the data fills in. Is there a way to remove the password from an Excel document?

Software/Hardware used:
Microsoft Excel,
