FMP 11/old admin password



     I'm stepping in as the new office administrator of an organization and my first task is to access a FMP 11database with a custom-built GUI  containing over 8 years of data. The last IT guy put a password on it, and was gone months before I came in. Now the owner of the business, and apparently the IT guy cannot remember the password. I've scoured the forum topics and know that Filemaker cannot reset or access the password, but is there anyway to salvage the data and the interface? The owner is resolute that we have to have that data. I'm fairly computer literate, so I can go in and modify files from the backend if need be.
