    password problem



      password problem


      I'm currently running Filemaker pro 11 on Windows XP and have converted from Filemaker6 and cannot use my existing password.

      The prior Filemaker6 file was damaged and during recovery attempt it crashed so can I can no longrer use the old file.

      How do I recover the original filemaker 6 password so I can use the original password.

      I can't get into the new file except as a guest.


      I have tried using the original password as the USER ID & password

      I have also tried using User ID as blank with the original password and have tried using ADmin as the user ID and a blank password.

      Nothing has worked


      Any suggestions?

          Have you tried using FileMaker 6 to recover the file? Surely you keep back up copies? (If not, make it an iron clad rule to never have just one copy of an important file ever again.)

          Passwords in FileMaker 6 are not case sensitive, but passwords in your converted file will be, so make sure you are using the correct capitalization.
