in thread ParseExcel but decode/decrypt it

Thanks for your reply andreas,
but sadly time is a major concern, read I am not granted any.
I have accomplished to recognize when a paswword is been set, I can determine the type of encryption. Excel uses a standard password to allow viewing in any excel app. My only but outmost the very problem is that I can not make ParseExcel to behave in any other way if I set Worksheet->{excrypted}. I would like it to then try to decrypt before continuing parsing.
Does anyone out there have an idea or knows a tool, might also be a commercial solution, that can strip protected content and decrypt the content that is not protecetd?
All I need is the data inside of the sheets which are not read protected.

regards ralf

Have a nice day
All decision is left to your taste

    There are several Excel password recovery/removal tools out there. The only one I've ever used, however, is an Excel plugin, not a stand alone tool. I don't know if any stand alone ones exist.
