Yo peeps,

You know the excel quizzes you can get, e.g there would be 50 logos and you put the answer in and it tell you if you're right or wrong.

Is there anyway to get into the code of the spreadsheet and find the answers? I'm assuming they have to be in there somewhere because it tells you if you're right or wrong straight away.

I'll admit it I'm cheating for a comp at work haha and there are some prizes on offer so can anyone help a brother out?

upload it and we'll all take a look!

Yeah lets have a look at it

Can't really get the code from the spreadsheet because most of the time the worksheet is password protected.

You can still get the code from it. Doesnt matter what password they put on it.

i have used a password hack spreadsheet in the past. You open it using Excel and then you open the quiz sheet on top of that. You can then unprotect workbook.
I guess it depends on the version of Excel you are using.

Is it 80s cartoons quiz?

Will be possible but hard given the fact that you cannot upload it to see the code.

Upload it...I am sure we can all get it!

Depending on which quiz it is there may be answers on google already.

search for password.xla this will crack the password

They look hard. One is a landmark and guess the city, i.e Eifel Tower / Paris. Another one is 150 logos..they werent showing up for some reason it might go live next week. The last one was something like 100 celebrities eyes and to guess their names.

Got office 2000 at work and 2007 at home, where would I be able to aqcuire a password hack loool.

Also how would I upload it?

well, if you do manage it, make sure you are smart and purposely get some wrong lol

for starters but there will be more work to do

If it cracks it you can start by right clicking any tab and'view code'

This should bring a new page up 'Visual Basic' which should have 3 window, the VBA project window which will list all the sheets and modules within the workbook, a properties window and the code window.

In the project window if there are any sheets listed that are not visible when you are in the work, click on the sheet in the project window and then in the properties window there should be a 'visible' option where there is a drop down menu of visible, hidden and very hidden, make them all visible and we'll go from there.

If the project and properties windows are not there when you open the visual basic page go to view and select them from there.

Download visual basic express, and you can open in there. Then change the code. How i done one i got a college. The coding will be in visual basic but its real simple to write edit.
