"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It suggests that this ledger (Company File) was originally set up without a user name. Assuming that to be the case, there is not much you can do going backward.

Going forward, enforce user names and passwords including an administrative user name and password.
