Is there any way to remove the password on an Excel 2007 VBA project? (Either within Excel itself of with some other application.)

If you can open the project and save it, this looks like it might work:

If you can't open the project, and you have to crack the password, that's tougher. Looks like Microsoft beefed up the encryption in Office 2007 a lot over previous versions of Office, so this is a tall order.

I think you'll be best off with a paid product unless you want to visit the risky, seamy underbelly of the internet.

That looks viable..
