Summary

I have no password protection, but file asks for password!!!

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

8.5v2

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.6.6

Description of the issue

Been using FMP since v1 for my monthly accounts (now up to 8.5). I've never set password protection (I'm the only user of my Mac). For over two decades, every month I open the last month's file, duplicate it, and make a new month. Today, I can't open last month's (or any!!!) FMP file, it always asks for a password - which, since I've never set I don't know. AND ... I can create new FM files, but as soon as they're closed, they also ask for a password to open.

How can I undo all this password stuff? HELP!!!
