    Password issues



      Password issues


      I have been using fp7 for a couple of years now with without having to enter a username or password.  Last night I had to reformat my mac, then reloaded everything.  When I clicked on fp to load my database, it said I had to enter a username and password.  I have tried  entering in "Admin" with no password, but this does not work.  How do I get by this?  I have never used a password for this database.

          Thank you for your post.


          FileMaker, Inc. will not remove any passwords from a database file.


          Do any of your previous backups have this problem?  If not, then find the most recent backup and use that.  If all of your backups exhibit the same problem, then it may be a FileMaker problem.  Uninstall and reinstall FileMaker Pro again.

               If all else fails, you might try recovering the file.
