Passwords are there as (very) basic protection, installed by the author of the file, to prevent others accessing a workbook, or VBA project.
Asking how to remove them (or helping others do so) is not acceptable practice.
Unfortunately, if it's your own file, then you need to keep a better record of your passwords.
If it's someone else's then best advice would be to leave well alone.
