how to unlock a microsoft word password

  keith-236785 17:07 18 Nov 05

i have been asked if there is a way to unlock a password protected word document when the person has "forgotten" the password (i only have their word for the fact it is their file which they need to unlock).

does anyone know of a way to unlock a password protected Microsoft Office Word document?

im not sure about any details (version of word etc.) but could find out over the weekend if it important.

thanks both of you, any advance on £4 lmao

i think the person will be happy to pay £4 but if there is a free option, that would be even better.

once again folks, you pass on some help and recieve no feedback...i gave the floppy disk to the person first thing monday. i expected a reply tuesday to say thanks, or that didnt work.....but as usual nothing (yet)

thanks for the help folks, i will sign it as resolved and will add a note if the person ever gets back to me with the outcome

Bah humbug, as it were. I must correct myself for crediting VoG with that download , I meant to say `Nice find Fruit Bat /\0/\`.

just a final update, the person has given me feedback finally, the prog worked a treat and the document was accessible again.

thanks Fruit Bat /\0/\`.
