There is not another way for you. Remember the password.
I hope there is (somewhere) a copy of the previous version of your file saved without password...

Please, edit the initial post in the topic: add the word [Solved] at the beginning of the subject line - if your problem has been solved.

Google password open office document and you will find sites like Remove Protection and Recover OpenOffice Documents After Losing a Password (which seems quite dated) and OpenOffice Password Cracker. I have never used either so I don't know how good they will be.

If you do use one please let us know how you get on.

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
