    How to unhide password protected worksheet in excel using VBA or something

    I have an excel file which has three worksheets. Two worksheets are visible (everyone can see), and the rest one is hidden and password protected.

    I need to unhide the hidden worksheet. To unhide the hidden worksheet, I will have to break the password.
    Password is long and little bit complex.

    I don't need to recover the password. If I can remove the password, and unhide the hidden worksheet, it will be ok for me.

    Is there any way which I can follow to overcome this problem? Is there any VBA code, or something like that which I can use? Or can python help me to remove the password and unhide the worksheet?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. That seems to be an Excel question and this is the Project forum

    2. Please read the link below about 'cracking' passwords
