Hey all.
I've searched the archives for help to this but to no avail; so is there any way a file can be unprotected when the password is not known - not the worksheet or workbook but the file.
Any answers would be greatly appreciated!

What is =ROMAN(40) in Excel?
The Roman numeral for 40 is XL. Bill "MrExcel" Jelen's 40th book was called MrExcel XL.

Thanks Will, I had seen that but I can't access the excel key as our system has a secure computing smartfilter, any other ideas?!

Try looking at the whole thread from page 4... Jack in UK has some suggestions of how you can add some code to the auto_open procedure to run the VB code suggested in the thread - it may help if you read the whole thing.... as i'm sure the user wanted to do the same as you do.

Regards
