The chief accountant would like to view the protected files in MS Excel 2000 that were protected with password by a user who just resigned.

I already downloaded freeware for decrypting password in MS Excel 2000. Yet, it didn't work successfully. Is there any freeware tool that is reliable & stable? If not & would need to purchase via the net, can you send me the links of reliable companies/sellers that sell software for decrypting passwords?

Thanks! ;-)

TR members do not assist password recovery.

The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we the members of TechRepublic will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc..

... to ask for the passwords. Be sure to remind them that the files are the property of the company and that failure to provide that information is the same as stealing from the company and they could be prosecuted.
