Thanks Alex, all though I disagree.Been doing this for a long time and there are software programs that secure far more valuable data WITH recover options. But, I appreciate your help, will review the security seminars when time permits.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Have you tried toggling CAPS just in case it was on when you put the password in?

Depending on the reason for the password it might be better storing the data in a SQL Server etc as it's more secure and options to reset passwords.
Still use Access as the FE though

Its absolutely stupid, there is no password recover with Access. This make the program not worth using!!

Reply from Alex Hedley:

How would a password recover work? That would make the encryption by-passable making the password pointless.

There are other ways you can protect the db like covered in the Security Seminars.
