According to Microsoft you can remove it but only if you know it currently.

    No, almost there is no way to unlock. Password is a one kind of security, once you forgot means, probably you lost this file if s/he has back up of the same file, try to get back this one. The remove password depends on Office versions. You can also try with a good 3rd party tool.

    Kind of a funny subject. If it was easy to remove them then why even have them in the first place? Kind of defeats the purpose of having them.
