Hi i am not sure what the security is. when it loads it asks me for the password and then works fine it just will not let me remove the password.
If i open it in the exclusive mode i put in the password and the i get to option to set a password.
But whatever i enter it say not a valid password if i try and set a new one.

So does this mean it might be user level security

I enter data into this database on a daily basis and i have some old backups and it will let me remove the password from them ok but not the latest version.

Regards to you all

Hope you can help
