You're most likely out of luck. If it was created in a newer version of Access that uses stronger encryption (AES) and it was protected with a decently strong password, you're not going to be able to crack it. You'll need to contact whoever created the database to see if they remember the password.

Any product that purports to crack it is either a scam or would only work on weak encryption used in much older versions of product.

If they use a weak password then you could try a dictionary type attack or brute force it. But you're probably not going to have success with that.

We will not give advice helping anyone to crack a database password as we have no way of knowing whether or not you have a legitimate right to use such a database. Passwords are added in order to keep out those who shouldn't be in it.

Even if you can show you have legitimate reason for gaining access then posting here how to break into your database would then be a resource for others that don't have such a right.

So, I'm afraid we won't be able to help you with this issue.
