CNET Editors' review
This easy-to-use tool quickly powers through select Excel passwords, freeing password-protected documents, although it disables rather than recovers them. Excel Password Recovery Master's simple user-friendly interface uses a single user-enabled field. There isn't much to learn in order to operate this app.
Operating Excel Password Recovery Master takes just a few moments. Users select the password-protected Excel file using the built-in file browse tool. In select cases the program immediately removes Write, Workbook, Shared Workbook, and Worksheet passwords. If the file has an Open password, the app polls the publisher's server for help decrypting and defeating the password. The work is behind-the-scenes and is very quick.
Excel Password Recovery Master doesn't report the found password, but it does allow you to open password-protected files. This tool is quick and works well. Novices to expert users should find it useful in the event of a lost Excel password.
From Rixler Software:
Excel Password Recovery Master is a dedicated tool to unlock Excel files and decrypt their content. It extends the family of recovery tools the company has to offer with yet another effective solution to the problem of lost passwords. The program gracefully removes all types of protection in Excel documents. Its ability to remove open passwords, however, is the skill that raises Excel Password Recovery Master above the others. The program does it instantly and infallibly. The sophistication of the new technology doesn't affect the user interface, which remains clear and simple. It takes just one click to reset or recover an 'open', 'write', workbook, shared workbook or worksheet password. The program does all the work in the background and removes the document protection almost instantly. The strength of the password has no effect on the speed of recovery. With Excel Password Recovery Master, users can be sure that a password loss won't interfere with their course of work.

Version: Excel Password Recovery Master 22.214.171.124
Removes and recovers passwords from files saved in 97-2003.
Strict demo limitations.

Nothing special if you need password recovery. There's plenty of freeware counterparts that can recover passwords with similar speed - e.g. Free Word Excel password recovery Wizard which can be found at this site. If paying $15 (what's the program costs) is not a problem, the much beter use for your money would be choosing online services like www.password-find.com which recover passwords much faster and support more file types for the same cost.
