    How to connect and work in Password Protected Access Database file? I forgot password

    Is there any way to connect and work on password protected access database file (.mde extension) or do i have to start from scratch and rebuild all database?

    If you don't know the password then any code you write wont know the password either... and you can't connect to a password protected database without the password.

    While you could write code to try lots of different passwords, it is likely to take a very long time (possibly years) to get the right one, and may fail if you haven't written the code in a way that is capable of getting the right password.

    The chances are that it is best to start again, especially if it was only a few hours/days worth of work.
