How to Recover a Password for VBA Projects in Excel
Password recovery programs can unlock VBA project passwords. ( Images)

Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications is a programming language used with Microsoft Office applications. VBA code is written inside the Visual Basic Editor, which can be accessed through any spreadsheet in Excel. If you want to protect your code from being altered or copied, you can set a password to protect it. However, if you forget the password, Microsoft won't help you recover it; you will have to purchase third-party software to unlock your project.
