Could you access the database using your password when MS Money 2004 was installed?
If so, I'd try:
* Restarting the computer and accessing the database again.
* Double check things like caps lock to make sure that the password is being entered correctly.
* Try uninstalling Money 2006 and reinstall Money 2004 to see if you can access the database then.
If not, or the above does not work, you can try using a password recovery program, such as Money Key. The program costs $45, but it's probably worth it to try to recover all of your financial data, especially if you don't have a backup (ie printout).
Hope this helps,
I upgraded from MS Money 2004 to 2006. The new version takes the latest file backup (from 2004 program) and then wants the previous password (from 2004). My password from 2004 is not working, so for all purposes I have lost my entire Money database.
Microsoft will not help. Any ideas would be appreciated.
