Forgot VBA project password.....

Posted by Bruce on February 25, 2000 4:47 PM

Help, I created several modules and used the VBA Project properties to password protect from viewing.

I must have used a non-standard pw that I can not recall.

Is there a way I can view or copy the modules to another workbook or disable the protection property?

I recently purchased the VBA Key software from as I was having loads of problems with people at work forgetting their passwords and then needing to update the macros(sound familiar???)

I can heartily recommend this particular software (I think it's only about $45). If you can't be bothered shelling out your hard earned cash, email me your file and I'll let you know the password.

The following site provides a macro for finding out a worksheet's password.
I haven’t checked it but perhaps it can also work for a VBA module.
