    forgot word password
    Hi everyone,

    Sorry if this appears stupid but I have put together a document in word and locked it for safety and now cannot think of the password having tried about 30 different options!

    Does anyone know how I can view the document or reset/recover my password? I am using Word 2008 OS X 10.6.4

    Thanks for your help

    There are a few password recovery software downloads out there, mainly for windows-based PCs though, although if you can transfer the file to a Windows PC then get a freeware password recovery that actually works then try that.
    Other than that i'm out of ideas, seems the password function has worked TOO well lol

    Then you're out of luck. There is no password recovery software that I know of for OS X. As suggested by the previous reply, find a PC and transfer the file to it and then download this.
