To rescue a Word document that has been locked,

*Open press F11 while holding down shift and alt (Alt-Shift-F11). to launch the script editor in Word with the file opened
*Select the find option (or hit ctl-f), and run a find for the word "password." This should highlight something liket his"32943208";
*Remove the letters and numbers between the tags
*Apply the changes made in the document in the script editor and close the window.
*On the "Tools" pulldown menu, select "unprotect" Your document should now be unprotected.

Forgot your word password,Solving this problem by using software:
There are many 3rd party utilities which claim to recover forgotten word password:
The program that I recommend is the Word Password XXXXX 5.0 It recovers/removes the "Password
to Open" and "Password XXXXX Edit" for you to view and edit the document freely.
