Are you asking about

1. Removing the VBA Project password?

2. Removing the user applied PW to a workbook?

3. Removing the user applied PW on the worksheeets in a workbook?

In all cases you need to know the password(s)

1. I do not know of a way

2 and 3 -- these can be done via VBA if you know the password(s)
