    Password for Access (2003)

    I am using Access 2003 and Office XP (professional enterprise edition 2003). When ever I try to open or create an Access database, I am asked for a user name and password. I have tried putting in my network user name and password but it does not work. If I cancel I can not open/create the document. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?

    I have solved the problem. I turned out to be a problem with my profile on the computer. We re-created that and it solved the problem.

    Actually what you encountered was Access User Security. Each Access installation points to a default security file named system.mdw and if the Admin user has a password, then you always get that password prompt.
