Lost MS Access VBA Project Password

I have a .mdb file that I created a few years ago (created using MS Acess 2007 but saved as an mdb file) that is no longer in use by anyone but contains some VBA Code that I would now like to re-use.Unfortunately I have forgotten the password I used on the VBA project. I looked up PASSWARE but they want $79 and I only need to get into one file. Does anyone know where/how I can get into this one VBA project without spending quite so much money?

Hi mx, Are you able to point me to a reputable site/service that has this ability? I have seen other questions in Excel where they've pointed to some sites that provide the needed help.

I'm in a catch 22 here. I trust advice given by EE and what makes it more trustworthy is that it has these types of rules to reduce the risk of abuse/theft whereas if I do a Google search I have no idea if I will end up on unscrupulous web sites.

Just ... can't do that, but you've already done what I would have to do in a similar situation. So, you can follow that track.

Thanks anyway. Unfortunately the Excel approaches won't work so I will either rewrite or pay the $79. I will make a point of writing down passwords in future. Rob
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

No worries mx. I will leave the question open because I noticed that on one of the Excel versions of this question it was the moderator who pointed to a possible solution. Hopefully the moderator will see this one too.

Answer is good in that it tells me you can't help. It's not excellent because it doesn't help. Sorry

In regards to one of your comments, I tend to trust CNet downloads, but my personal CNet download experience is mostly for drivers and the like, not a cracking utility like you seek.

Hi aikimark, Thanks for the tip. I will search there for a solution. Appreciate your advice on a closed question

Hey ... speaking of 'driver sites' (briefly) ... there seem to be 1000's of 'free' driver sites where supposedly you can get any 'updated' driver. For example, I'm kind of looking for an updated display driver from my Gateway M675 laptop (circa 2004), still one of the best laptops ever and still my primary.  So ... to me, all these drive sites seem a bit scary.  What is your take on this, and do you have some you trust?

thx.mx

@mx

My most recent experience wasn't pleasant.  I've seen a lot of "use our app to keep your drivers current" situations.  I had to research them a lot until I didn't feel queasy.  However, I deleted the app as soon as I had updated the driver.  They all seem a bit scammy and dangerous.

Pretty much my conclusion. thx.
