Thanks to JBF and Andreas for their hints. As I have a little program
which makes brute force approach I will run a test to see if this is
possible with PW protected LO files.

However, my question was how to open an LO file if the PW get
forgotten (not and MS file)?
Hints are welcome for the future.
Buy a super-computer, launch a brute force algorithm and pray that the
password is a short word from the standard English vocabulary.
For future reference, if you have to create a password protected
document [for viewing or editing] make sure you use one that will not be
forgotten or WRITE IT DOWN somewhere and save it in your filing cabinet.
At one computer center I worked, they taped the needed passwords on the
back of the keyboard. You needed a door key to get into the place, so
the passwords were protected, but that way all the personnel will be
able to access the needed systems and not forget the needed passwords.
I use a list of about a dozen passwords. So if I forget which one I
used, I just go down the "mental" list till I get the one I used for
that application or document.
