Default Unprotect a cell on Excel

Hi all,

I am new here.
I need unprotect a worksheet on Excel:
I have an old timeheet from my old work, I need to use it again, so I need to change some info, and always shows up this:

!The cell or chart you are trying to change is protected and therefore read-only.

To modify a protected cell or chart, first remove protection using the Unprotect Sheet command (Tools menu, Protection submenu). You may be prompted for a password.

The deal it is I do not remeber that deam password

Some ideas, I do really need help, I am so stupid for programing and do thinks on a PC.

Thanks a ton in advance

Chk out if this site would be of help to you...

Once the password is known, you can unprotect few cells on the Excel sheet by selecting the range of the cells and then "Format cells->Protection->Uncheck Locked.
