Access prompting for a password when it shouldn't

    I have an Access database that prompts me for a password when it shouldn't
    be. I read some time ago that it may have become corrupt by someone opening
    the database with the wrong application. If this is the case, is there a way
    to correct or repair the corrupted database?

    If the database was opened with Word (which is one way that you could start
    getting prompted), there's no way to recover.

    Doug,
    Thanks - I thought that might be the case.
