    As we all know, Microsoft Office 2007 is built with significantly improved security features and the passwords allotted to word and excel documents are extremely hard to break. Presently,there are only two basic methods of breaking passwords and they are dictionary searches and brute force attacks. Dictionary search is very quick but it doesn't help much if the password was created artificially, which means that the password is not a word but is a random combination of letters, numbers or symbols.brute force attack is a method that tries all possible combinations of the specified symbols. If the forgotten password had less than six symbols then the recovery can be quickly done. With longer passwords, the password recovery tool will take much longer. It many take hours and even days at times. Since you need to recover the password for you document, you can try word 2007/2010 and Excel 2007/2010 password recovery from www.lastbit.com.you could also try some other utilities that are available on www.freewordexcelpassword.com and www.password-crackers.com.
