Break Excel 2003 password

I have to add a macro to an xls workbook, I assume it is Excel 2003.
The existing VBA code is password protected. Can you recommend something to break the password?

I thought I had something to break the code, used it once a few years ago and now cant find it. Would prefer something not zipped as I don't have win zip or similar

Thank you

FWIW if you are running Win7 or above, windows has it's own zip manager?

Re: Break Excel 2003 password

If you double click it, it should open the file.?
If you right click a file or folder and select Send to and then Compressed (zipped) folder that will create a zip file as well.

Care to share the file?

I have similar issue with old Excel workbooks with VBA protected and need to amend them.
