Getting into secured old databases

P: n/a
I've got a couple of old databases that I set up some time back (like 1997,
in Access 97) - implemented full security and forgot to write down all my
security settings.
I just recently had a need to go back and get one of them and can't bypass
the security - I seem to recall being able to use <SHIFT> + Open about a
year ago (when I still had Access 97 installed) - now I have Access 2002 and
its telling me I don't have permission
Any ideas, cracks, anything appreciated

<Shift> + Open will bypass your Startup Options, but not security.
(That wouldn't be very secure, now would it?)

A Google search may find you some password/security crackers for Access
1997.

Here you go: http://www.lostpassword.com/access.htm

$45.00 to completely crack Access security.
