Hi, folks!

This is a blog page completely devoted to one thing: my tiny web-service which unprotects xslx-files allowing ’em to be edited again.

Here is a screenshot of the old service:

Feel free to use comments section of this blog to ask questions and report bugs 🙂

Or you could also write an email in Russian or English, or any other language, that is supported by online translators, 😉 to the following address: helpdesk@xartifex.com

Service was just updated: 26/06/2015

The most important improvement is an ability for a visitor to support the service, donations are needed for:

  • keeping the service alive
  • keeping the service free and ads free
  • developing and improving the service
  • there are plans for switching it to another domain and hosting (with ssl and nearly 100% uptime)

  • improved design a little
  • changed from paypal to yandex.money for donation

    1. “The file is encrypted” means someone encrypted the file with password(https://goo.gl/1fho9A). Alas Unlock-excel won’t be able to help in such cases, because it would require substantial amount of time and resources in most cases. You might try some offline tool for that.


  1. Hi, I just want to say thanks for a great service, I was doubtful the site was real as all my offline attempts failed – except converting to xls, but that lost data after col.252 I’m remarkably impressed & curious as to how it works – Could you give me a clue?
