Batch Removal of Password

An unintended consequence of adding password to the PDF Form is, I cannot merge data fields to export to Excel.

Does anyone have a solution around this? I am expecting 1,000 applications. I need the information to export to Excel, which means I have to open each document and remove the password. I cannot send this form out without a password because these people would alter EVERY single field on the form to give me what "they want me to have" instead of answer the questions we have asked them.

Any Ideas? BTW the form is already live.

Assuming the password for all the files is the same you, and you have Adobe Acrobat Pro, you can use an Action to batch remove the security policies from the files you'll receive back.
