  • If a password is required to open the document, you can't circumvent it, no.

  • Hi,

    Microsoft has added password protection capability to many features in Office programs to help prevent unauthorized access to important information. If you are unable to access information because you do not know the correct password, please realize that:

    Microsoft support professionals cannot assist you, under any circumstances, in the breaking of passwords applied to files and features in Microsoft programs.

    Thank you for your understanding and support.
