Hi Naser

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry to hear that. There isn't much that can be done to retrieve the PDF password, you may try to recreate the PDF form the original source file or contacting the author of the PDF file.

 

Regards'

Amal

Hi Amal

Thank you. I am the original author and I have the original file on my desktop as word file, and I have no problem opening it as wordfile or saving it as new PDF file.

 

But, I saved it weeks ago as PDF file with a password and send it to a company. The company came back to me and asking for the password. The company do not accept new file, they ask for the password to see the offer i sent in the original file.

Thanks

Thank you for your time

No! I did not. The only one knows the password is me, but I totally forget it.

Thank you for your answer

Creating the file again will not serve the purpose. I already created the file weeks ago, and send it to a company. Based on their request, the file must be sent to them encribted without the password. The password will be requested later. Hence, if I created the file again, the new password will not open the file I already sent weeks ago. The company will consider only the content of the first file

I must find the password for the first file

If there was a way to open a file for which you have forgotten the password it would be useless to put a password on it.
