Microsoft Access

Passwords for opening and accessing VBA projects in MS Access 95-2003 can be found instantly. The level of protection for this format is rather low.

Microsoft Excel

Depending on the version of a specific Excel file, recovering the password can take different amounts of time.

The protection in documents saved by Microsoft Excel 6–95 is weak: passwords can be recovered instantly. Retrieving passwords for Excel 97–2003 files requires more intensive searching, so a GPU is necessary to speed up the process. Microsoft Excel 97–2003 documents that require a password to open can be opened in an instant.

However, the level of protection increased dramatically in Microsoft Excel 2007–2013. These documents are not as simple to retrieve. Fortunately, searching can be performed on a graphics card, requiring just a fraction of the time.

Passwords for protecting pages and making changes can be found instantly. The algorithm is such that a working recovered password may not necessarily be the same as the original password that was used.

VBA macros are an open book: access passwords for VBA projects can be found (or removed) instantly.

Microsoft PowerPoint / Microsoft Word

Passwords for opening these documents work very similarly to the passwords for Microsoft Excel.

No matter how complex the password, passwords against making changes can be removed or deleted instantly. This goes for VBA passwords as well.
