    Hi to anyone who reads this.

    I am a newbie to forums and hope that I have come to the right place in order to begin my participation in any conversations.

    Unfortunately it is a problem that has brought me here and I hope that somebody may point me in the right direction with an issue that is self inflicted by stupidity.

    It involves office 2008 in particular excel and I have stupidlyforgotten the password I used to protect a spreadsheet. Normally my passwords are not something I forget in all other areas of personal privacy, so it is frustrating that the one time I forget one, it is on an important spreadsheet.

    After conducting research into how I can re-access this file, my attempts so far have only served up advice for pc based versions. I am the author of this file and no legal issues are possible as a result of this problem.

    If anyone can help point me in the right direction or even provide me with credible support to overcome this issue then I will be eternally grateful. I know my gratitude is an intangible reward for such important assistance but being a stranger to all, I do not know any other to way to demonstrate said gratitude.

    Your hopefully

    Fluid Lives

    You're pretty much out of luck. Try to remember the password.

    Hi Miles01110,

    Thats the answer I was worried about getting but kind of expecting lol...It is looking more and more like a rebuild job, which in all fairness might be easier than searching my memory bank.

    Thanks for your reply
