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.


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.
I tried that with a software named "password recovery" or something like
that. It failed to find a 6 characters password in 8 hours on a standard PC.

Best regards.
