    How do I unlock password protected files that 2 Word document users, who have now left our employ, placed on documents that I need to edit and re-save?

    uh-oh.......

    1) call them and ask them for the password
    2) pay for a service that provides that solution
    3) treat people right and they won't try to screw you when they leave bitter and angry (kinda-sorta just joking about that one ;) )

    but seriously.....
    think about it.........
    if password protected files were so easy to bypass.....
    how "protected" would they really be???

    bottom-line:

    if you can open the file....
    then copy the contents to a new unprotected file....
    and then save it (y)

    if you can't open the file.....
    your S.O.L. (n)

    sorry :(
