Remove VBA Password

VbaDiff can remove passwords from VBA projects. This can be achieved through both the main GUI as well as the API.

To get access to your VBA code again, follow these steps:

  1. Download a copy of VbaDiff from the download page. Double-click on the downloaded file to begin installation.
  2. Once installation is complete, open VbaDiff from the Windows Start Menu. See How to run VbaDiff.
  3. Take a backup of your file.
  4. In the main VbaDiff window, use the left Browse button and select the file you wish to remove the password from. The project modules will appear in the left panel.
  5. Expand the Properties section of the tree view.
  6. VbaDiff will determine whether the VBA project is locked.
  7. If the project is locked, click on the Unlock button.
  8. To remove a password, you will need to buy and install a Professional license.
  9. Click on the Save Icon to write this change to your file.
