Is there any way to find the password for a Business Objects XI R2 user?
I have the admin access to CMC. And these users access the BO WEBI reports.

you cannot. Business Objects passwords are stored with an encrypted hash algorithm and are not retrivable. If the user has some personal documents -- I suggest you copy them in the CMC to your personal folder/inbox  using Administrator. Delete and recreate the user and move those documents back and tell him the new password. Note the group memberships for the user and set them accordingly when you recreate
