Prior to FM7, there was only a password. Converted .fp5 > .fp7 now using Account and password. The default full access account is Admin with no password. Try that. Also try entering as both the account and password, the password that you know.
Thanks for responding! Hadn't tried Admin without a password, but this didn't work either. Am going to see if I can use my Mac laptop to boot up the old computer and see if I can at least print out labels for them. If I get access to the computer, is there someplace where I would find account information?

First, open the file while holding Option and see if anything gets pre-filled in the Account field (it will be either the computer's username or something else, according to the application's preferences).
If that doesn't provide the answer, look in Keychain.
When opening my old filemaker 3 database in filmaker 9 I HAVE TO leave the account name blank and enter the password as normal.
If I have anything entered into the account name field it will NOT work.
