so I have a access database and it's a testing database that you can use a cac card to login and take tests. and they have admins for this database and to change the admins you need to have a password. I do not know the password and the person that made it left and I have no way to contact him. the file doesn't have a password on it. it's a logon script I assume. any help would be appreciated

Hello, 

 

I don't know how the developer created the login. I can guess a bit :) 

 

If you hold SHIFT in during the start of the database it wil not load the autoexec (if the developer did not block it)

 

If this does not work you can try to create a new database and import all objects without the autoexec macro or module. 

 

curious what will happen :)

 

Greetings,
