Unanswered: Encripted user login issue
Hi, I have a data base which our company has workd off for many years and our IT guy has left and changed all the passwords so we cannot access our own data.
I have found the login access database however when you open it its encripted.
Can anyone offer assistance on how to view the data? I have attached a screen shop of how it seem to look at the moment.

- out on a limb
moved it to the Access thread
just wondering if the miscreant has changed the code page for the database. its not somehtign I've ever done, or even contemplated so I don't know if you can but those sort of symbols are symptomatic of code page issues
there are other options
one is to create a new database
temporarily change the workgroup security file to somethign else, or nothing
import all the objects from the problem db.
see if that clears the fault
then re apply any security settings as required
if so repeat the process with all other db's with the same problem.I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
