crackxls2003 breaks the encryption on Microsoft Excel and Word 97/2000/XP/2002/2003 files which have been encrypted using the RC4 method. These files are encrypted using a 40-bit-long key. It will not work on files encrypted using versions later than 2007 or versions 95 or earlier, or if a non-default encryption method was used.
mtCellEdit is a lightweight spreadsheet program. Its main goal is to provide facilities for simple day-to-day tasks using a minimal graphical user interface. It uses TSV based file formats to ensure that archived data is always accessible to other programs, regardless of operating system, both now and in the future. These "other programs" might be spreadsheet programs, text editors, command line tools, or custom built programs. It is written from scratch and provides all of its core facilities via a library, so any C program can access its API.
