    Forgotten Password (Access 2000)

    Is there a way to open a database if a user has set a password for their Access 2000 database and now can't remember what it is or is there a product that can be purchased that will provide someone with this capability.

    Judy: There is a product, Access Key 5.0.0. Try this link http://www.lostpassword.com/ I purchased it 2 months ago for $45.00 and has been a lifesaver for me. HTH.

    Re: Forgotten Password (Access 2000)

    Will this work if a Database Level Password has been set. What about if a password is applied to VB?

    This product will work for Database Level passwords and for User-Level Passwords. If the password is in VBA, it will not work.

    Thanks. I will pass this info on to my user who is in a panic thinking she has to recreate and retype everything.

    If the db is not too large, your user could e-mail it to me and I would run the program against the db. Save yourself/your user $45

    Thanks for the offer. By the time I read your post, my user informed me she had already ordered the program.
