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

Enter Old PW First

Often a tool for setting a new password will first prompt for your current password. Try entering your current password on the 1st prompt, then it may ask for a new password, and usually twice.

Any problems using Access 2007 database with Access 2010?
According to what I've read, Access 2010 uses the same database format as Access 2007. So this should mean I can open and run a 2007 database (with a lot of VBA code) in Access 2010 with no trouble, yes? So why do I have the feeling that something is not going to work? Is it because I have...
