Recover password for module in Access database RRS feed

  • Question

  • A client has asked me to make some modifications to a program written in Access 97 a long time ago.  The programmer has disappeared; they don't know if he died, or left the country or what - he's not reachable.

    When I try to access the module, it asks for a password.  Any ideas on ow I can find out this password, or get around this somehow?

    Thank you

    >> First of All I want to tell you that support for Access 97 has been over on 1/31/2004. So Microsoft has stop to support Access 97.

    >>The other thing I want to tell you that Microsoft has not provided any ways to get the forgotten password.

    >> If you still want to recover the password then you can search on different search engines. Lots of Third Party software are available now days which offer to recover forgotten password of Access.
