Here is the file I am trying to get the pw disabled
Microsoft Office Technician: The-PC-Guy, Computer Manager replied 6 months ago

ok, the entire workbook is passworded and encypted, I cannot open it, If I cannot open it there is nothing I can do.

I thought you said it was just a single sheet within the file that was passworded, that I could have dealt with

so under these circumstances I cannot do anything sorry
