Recovering password of an Excel spreadsheet file

Recovering password of an Excel spreadsheet file

I have a serious bad situation: I have an Excel file that is password protected and I need to access the information asap for a deadline for a project. Are there any good Excel password recovery tools available for Ubuntu that I could use to achieve this task?

A few years back I managed to circumvent the password protection on an Office '97 Excel file by doing something stupidly trivial... like exporting the document as a CSV file. This worked because XLS files had been password protected only, not encrypted.
