OpenOffice 1.1 password recovery or removal?
From: Abe Getchell <mailing.list.spooler () gmail com>

Greetings!

One of my users has an OpenOffice 1.1 spreadsheet to which they cannot remember the password. This person password protected several spreadsheets at the same time (using the same password), and apparently fat-fingered this one. Unfortunately, this spreadsheet contains some of their more important data.

I have searched quite a bit and couldn't turn up anything that would recovery (or wipe) the password from an OpenOffice 1.1 spreadsheet. There are all sorts of tools for MS Office products, but that doesn't apply in this case. Does anyone have any tips or links they could share? Freeware, commercial, doesn't matter.

I appreciate the assistance!

Thanks,
Abe
