How to recover Lost Excel password 2007 File

The only application I actually recommend is a commercial app called Passware. I've been using their password recovery tools in a corporate environment for.... 15 years?

Link: Passware Kit

It allows you to instantly recover Excel, Word etc... documents from Excel 4.0 to Excel 2003. Excel 2007 - 2019 however, it will need to use brute force to get into the Office file. Which.... takes time 

I'm sure there might be other tools out there but I suggest Passware become I've used it and it works (as long as you're not using a long-and-strong password. It can do long and strong PW's but it will take time.

      Question from Reader - Email Form
       
       
      Hi Tom,
       
      Ouch. I know how it feels losing a days worth of work. The worst part is when you have to recreate what you've already done.
       
      To answer your question, when you found the Entry "OutlookSecureTempFolder" what was the path in the DATA column? I assume you reviewed this post here to find it. It looks like you found the registry key entry so your more than 1/2 way there. Find that key again and you should have the path to your OLK folder and your Excel should be sitting there.
       
      Now the path might be a bit confusing because with Outlook 2007, there actually is "NOT" an OLK folder. For instance, on my XP/Outlook 2007 install, my OLK folder or "Temp Outlook Folder" / "OutlookSecureTempFolder" is:
       
      c:\Documents and Settings\mrgroove\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\4V32TZLP  
      So if you look on your box you will find what your looking for in the "Content.Outlook" folder. Take a look there and your golden.
       
      More reading can be found here also on the Outlook OLK folder location:

      Thnx!

      My dad wants me to make him a excel sheet with all different formula's in it. No problem, I can make those. But in the sheet, the first cells are used for a name from his client, and the second cell is used for a date.
      Q: Is it possible to make Excel use those to cells to create the filename of the sheet when it saves?

      Office Excel 2011 - Protect worksheet or workbook - I have protected the worksheet by a password but find I still can copy and past into a new worksheet and then I can change things arround. How can I stop someone being able to change or delete things.
