 Programmatically remove passwords

Hi,

One of mour guys has produced hundreds of Word documents, all with the same
'read only' password. He now wants to remove the read only passwords. He
knows what the passwords are. Is there any way to programmatically remove
them given the password ?

Cheers

Andrew

Yar, www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/index.html points to some tricky VBA to
mas sprocess documents by batch. Whack the password in the open
statement, and then do a Document.SaveAs  and then .Close as your
processing pass.
