How can I view an old Microsoft Word document that is password protected, when I cannot remember the password?

I have an old Microsoft Word file from many years ago which I inexplicably password protected, and now have forgotten the password. It is not a vital document, but I would like to get access to it again, but I don't know of a way to do it.
What is the best way to break the lock on the file to view it again, or better yet, to recover the password I used back then?
