I've lost my password!
Well, there are passwords and there are passwords. One is to open the file, one other is to unprotect the spreadsheet, still another is to unprotect the workbook and yet another one is to unprotect the macro code. File and VBA passwords cannot be cracked by a "normal macro", workbook and worksheet passwords are fairly easy. A search for "excel password" at http://www.google.com/ will find both commercial and free solutions of varying quality and brutality.
How can I protect an Excel file (and associated code) from unauthorized copying and/or create time limited functionality?
There is no foolproof method for this, and most solutions limit themselves to require macros enabled on opening. This said, creating your own system is a fun challenge allowing lots of "evil creativity".
