Open a password protected MDB/MDW
Now I have a task I need to do and I went back to this DB. The problem is I have it tightly secured and I cannot remember username nor password for this!
If I try to open the MDB alone I get an error message saying I don't have permissions. If I try to open the DB using the shortcut which points to the MDW, I get the login screen but again, I don't remember the username and password.
I also tried to import the DB bjects to a new DB (I'm in Access 2007) but again, no permissions screen comes up.
I checked online and found some softwares that are able to recover the password but for such a lame think I'm not willing to spend 20 USD
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I guess It's not the group issue as other threads has said, because it doesn't come up the user/pass prompt window when opening other files. And I tried to delete that system.mdw file but no use.
I have an application that allows you to browse to a separate database and connect but, if the seperate db is password protected, then there may be issues so by detecting if a password is required, I would use a password form

I have a secure? client linked to an ODBC SQL Server 2008 db using an mdw file. My question is, if a user has access to the client via a password, what stops the same user from creating another blank mdb and using the same mdw in a path statement to open the data base (SQL Server

I have reviewed previous posts in the forum and followed their advise achieved in splitting the database to FE and BE, and converting the FE as MDE file to protect the codes and Forms in the database.
I am proceeding to User Level Security but encountered couples of problem. Which increased my concerned if it is wised to setup user level security for the multi FE MDB.
1) I could not could not set User Level Security in an MDE file? is that
2) I am now sharing the database by deploying FE copies of MDE file to the
other users' PC, is it the same after setting User Level Security MDB?
3) I found that there is a MDW file as well, and another shortcut was
created for logging to the protected MDB, whenever each time I deploy them as 2) at above, errors comes with not having permission in access to the MDB, likely due to lost of linking with the MDW file and the MDB file how to solve that?
Do I really need to modify the properties inside the "short cut for the secured database" everytime for every users' PC manually?
