Open Password Protected Excels without R software

11 - Bolide

I am hoping people can help.


I work for a company that doesn't let you install software that the IT team doesn't approve of.  I have tried to get them to consider allowing R to be installed on my computer, but they don't trust the open source nature of the software.  They don't want the liability.  


Because of this, I am searching for a way (potentially with python) where I can open a excel with a password in Alteryx.  I have the password and can open it manually, but it would slow down my work considerably if I need to copy out the data from the password protected file.  Has anyone written something that works and doesn't use R?
