i was toying with the user and admin security levels and got lock out of my databases. i opened the databases by opening access 97 and then opening the databases from there. it asked me for a password and i typed it in and got in. but when i clicked on the database itself and typed the password, it said it was the wrong password. i need to open the mdb files because i have an excel macro that opens them every morning. any help would be appreciated.
