You need the password to remove it! Pull the backup copy from the developers folder. If it contains data, reload from the last hard copy. Count yourself lucky you did not loose the application only some data. You should never lock your backup application copy. If you did your, SOL.
Use Ctrl+f on this board and search password, also try the two archives, I know I saw some links to utilities which crack passwords.

The Excel password utility is protected and their is no documented way in without the password used!

I lockup data with a VB macro which password locks the application or selected parts of an application. This module has an administrator function which has a preset administrator password that alows the administrator to see what password was used to lock the application. This weakens the password function but makes up for its weakness when a user locks an application and forgets the password. (We put our applications on our network and applications are shared, so any one could lockup data or an application.) This code is in three modules, Lock, UnLock and Administrator. If you want the code let me know. So this does not happen again? JSW

Tom Wagner if you see this?

Tom I sent you the code, but our server was having a problem with your E-Mail address so you may not get it. If you did not, E-Mail me again and type out your E-Mail address in the body of the text, the way it should be addressed. I would not want to send it out over the board, but will E-Mail it to you. You need the password to remove it! Pull the backup copy from the developers folder. If it contains data, reload from the last hard copy. Count yourself lucky you did not loose the application only some data. You should never lock your backup application copy. If you did your, SOL.
