If you know tha password, then:

Open the DB with the password
Click: Tools--Security--Un-set Database Password.

If you do not know the password, you are out of luck.

We are not allowed to suggest ways of bypassing a Databas's Security.

Kumawat_Shobha,

Yes, Un-Setting the password will remove the password.

If you know the password give it a try.
