You need to decrypt your database first because only after doing that you are been able to use your access database.

  1. It’s important to open source database in exclusive mode before removing of the password. So, Open the MS Access application and select “file” and then choose “open” from the toolbar menu.
  2. Press the down arrow present next to the “Open” located beside the File Name text box, and then selects "Open Exclusive" option.
  3. Enter the password and click ok. Click File in the top left of access to open up the file menu.
  4. Click to the Decrypt Database button from the Info
  5. Enter the password and click Ok.
  6. This time the password has been removed from the database.
