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 :(
