    XLA are extreamly hard to crack, i guess the module is view protected password this can be broken, with a suggested password, im not saying its correct just a suggestion, a shot in the dark, but it will open the module ans give a suggested password that will do just this. i have some VBA code to do this, if intrested email me and ill dig it out and mail to you...

    Email on my profile...

    BTW search this board, i and many others have covered this in details, some good ideas codes all sorts

    Hello Jack,

    I have an xla protected with a password (created by a former employee who apparently didn't want to share their creative genius...)

    Do you have VBA code that might help me to open the XLA?

    Thank you,
