FM database file wants a password to open it.  But I never gave the file a password.

Post

I recently converted an old FM 5.5 database (which never had a password) to FM 10.  I then spent a lot of time over a few days updating and making modifications to the database. I opened it twice (without any password) last week after converting it.

Now, when I tried to open it, it asked for an account name and password. It already had my name in for the account name; I don't remember ever giving this database file any password.  

It will not allow me to open the file as a guest.

Please, can anyone help me?  I've tried 20 different possible passwords that I might have used to no avail.  I really don't understand why it is asking for a password now, when it did not ask for one last week.  And I don't remember ever giving the file any password to begin with.

Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!
