    Unanswered: Password access problem

    Hi

    Hope someone can help. A colleage was trying to set a password for a specific database which has gone horribly wrong. Now when I try to open Access itself of any database I get a dialog box with Logon Name: ...... Password: .... I've tried the password he gave me and tried various Names but nothing works.

    I can get into Access and the databases in the normal way from another computer ... so I guess he's somehow put a password on the Access software on this particular pc.

    Im using Access 2003. I know the password (I guess) but no idea of the Name ...

    Can anyone help please?

    Hi Teddy

    Thanks for that. I ended up using every possible combination and found it by luck in the end - what he'd used was AdGp. Grrrrrr.
