    Unable to remove password from Access 2016

    I have found how to remove the password in various online searches but after opening the database in exclusive mode, I do not have an option to Decrypt, only to Encrypt.
    Without the Decrypt option I have no way to change or remove the existing password.

    This database started development in Access 2007 and has been successively upgraded to the current (2016) version.



    Any help greatly appreciated

    An interesting issue. If you have the password and can access the database. Can you export its contents to a new database that does not contain a password?

    Hi
    I would try Importing all objects into a new database.

    The Export option will only do 1 Object at a time.

    I get this when trying to import:
    I'm using the same password that successfully opens the original db

    Hi gtsolid

    Can you upload a zipped copy of the Db with the password?
