Microsoft Office allows you to password protect your documents to prevent unauthorized access and changes. As you may know, Microsoft Office Documents such as Word, Excel, Outlook, etc. can be password protected so that it requires password to either open or edit or both. MS Office does not allow you to open a password protected document if you enter incorrect password and Microsoft does not provide any tool to remove or crack the password.
There are various tools out there to open your documents in case if you lose or forget the password. Let’s look at one of the such useful tools that will help you recover password protected documents.

This is a paid application from Rixler Software that works pretty well to open a password protected document. It does not change the original document, but it creates a new document along with the entire content from the original, without a password.
Office Password Recovery Toolbox has a very simple interface. All you have to do is to browse the MS Office document that you want to remove the password. The tool will automatically remove passwords and create a new document.
You can use Office Password Recovery Toolbox to restore passwords for documents created in Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, Access and VBA Projects.
It provides an evaluation copy, so in case if you are looking to remove password for just few documents, you may not even need to buy the license. Otherwise, you can purchase personal license for $59.95 and for Business use $119.85.
The application only works on Office 1997 – 2003 versions (example: *.doc, *.xls, *.ppt, etc. and not *.docx, *.xlsx, *.pptx, etc.)
