VBA – Password Protection

It is possible to set a password for a VBA project.

It is also possible to get around this.
See: http://datapigtechnologies.com/blog/index.php/hack-into-password-protected-vba-projects/  (local mirror)

  1. Use a hex editor
  2. Search for DPB and change the B to an X.
  3. Save. Re-Open.
  4. Set password to a new one in VBA
  5. Open hex editor, change DPX back to DPB.

Forward and back a few times. Should work ok.
