Excel Bulkupdate with password protection and locked cells

Hey there,

a customer decommissioned his 2003 Server and migrated his files to a new server running a current version of Windows

The issue:
– 1000’s of excel files
– The excel files contain server paths which are referencing to each other
– Some files are password protected
– different passwords used
– locked cells

As there is nothing out there, we decided to write up a script: Use at your own risk!

This script scans a directory for files containing the extension “.xls” or “.xlsm” and tries a list of passwords.
Excel must be installed on the system running the script.
It has been written for a german version of excel, so you may need to edit the part #Exceptionhandling in the later section of the script to your regional settings
