Copper Contributor
When going into access to view file it Keeps asking me for a database password but I did not set one up and I cant see my files now?

@gloria15This article https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Encrypt-a-database-by-using-a-database-password-12AA0E5C-34... shows how to set and unset a database password. If this is currently set, you or someone around you must have set it.

If nobody knows the password, restore a database backup from before it was set.
