Do not have permission to open mdb file after XP upgrade
Posted on 2004-04-07
I have a client who upgraded to windows XP, and they have a MS access database that is secured through a workgroup file.
I downloaded a program from passware, and found the database file does not have a password associated with it - but the application does say it has a VB project and suggests using a VBA recovery program.
I took all the data and kept the same paths and tried getting this database to work on a 98 /office 2000 machine and it still doesnt work.
I found some docs that suggested using MS access Workgroup admin to create a new security file and trying to open the DB using a shortcut - still no dice.
Any help is appreciated.
