In common with most other computer applications you need to know what the password is before you can remove it. This is to prevent unauthorised alterations.

Go to the Tool... Protection... Unprotect sheet menu and a dialog box will appear, in which you have to type the password.

You can Google 'Excel Password Unlocker' and it will give you many options.

It wont give you your old password but make you change it so you can get in.
