I sheet protected one sheet in a workbook and I must have entered the password twice incorrectly. I have tried every combination with and without cap locks. Is there any way for me to look up what I entered or go around the protection?

Welcome,

Try running this macro(thanks to Juan Pablo)

Code:
Sub SheetPassword()

ActiveSheet.Protect "", , , , True

ActiveSheet.Range("a1").Copy ActiveSheet.Range("a1")

With ActiveWorkbook
.Protect "", True, True
.Unprotect
End With

End Sub
