    Is this a password to view the file or just to view the vba code. If it is password protected for opening the document you can try importing it to google docs as I don't think it bothers checking. No freeware programs for vba passwords from what I can see. I've had a couple of xls files which can be hacked using the tool on this site How to remove, crack, or break a forgotten Excel xls password but the newer xlsx files are more difficult. You might be able to rename the extension to .zip and see if you can extract them as this is basically all they are.

    It is to view the vba code so can open document but can not open the vba code to view it.

    @russdev. I only saw this thread due to the spammer that posted today, but for future reference I thought you might be interested in the following article...

    Excel VBA Password Protection is useless

    See above. It's not a program, but it is free.
