Unfortunately, due to specificity of Excel spreadsheets format it’s unreal to get 100%-recovery, still, you can use brute force to cover the rest 3%.

Advanced Office Password Breaker does not support files with the extension Rainbow Tables. Rt. When he points to the directory of the file, it displays a message that was not Rainbow Tables. What exactly is a program to create a file to be seen Advanced Office Password Breaker.

We use our own tables (they are shipped with the enterprise version of the software).
