Locked out of FileMaker 11 file


I cleared the "Admin" account name (left it blank) but entered a password for a filemaker file.  I did this in the File Options dialog box.  Now I can't get in.  If I leave the account name blank and enter the password, I get "the account and password you entered cannot be used to access this file" error message.  I get the same error if I use "Admin" as the account name. I know that I'm using the correct password.

This issue is very easy to re-create.

Does anyone know how I can get back into my database?
