I Have been asked to look at a filemaker 6 database however it auto logs in with a user with no priviliges i have the password for the admin accout but can force the database to switch user.

i have been told that on start up of the database there is a short code button that makes it ask for the passwords but i cannot find it.

    If you are on Windows, hold down the shift key on startup. If you are using a mac it is the Option key. That will bring up the password dialog.
