How to Resolve “Enter Password Prompt...” Error message

To prevent your Microsoft Access database from being accessed by unauthorized users, most of us encrypt our database by setting a strong password. An error message pops up every time an unauthorized user attempts to access your database by entering a wrong password. However, the error message can also pop up even when you have not set any password for your database. This primarily happens when your database is corrupted or damaged. In such situations, the database becomes unmountable and its records inaccessible. For easy access of records in such situations, an ideal way is to restore the data from an updated backup. However, if no backup is available or backup falls short to restore the required database records, then you will need to search for advanced access database repair software.

Consider a practical scenario, where your database becomes unmountable after you receive the below error message:

“Enter password prompt (when one has never been applied! - try Access Password Retrieval before assuming corruption)”

Your database records become inaccessible after the above error message appears.

Grounds of the error message:

Your database has been corrupted due to application malfunction, improper system shutdown, virus attack, and many more similar reasons.

How to Resolve:

For successful resolution of the error message and access of your database records, you will need to repair your database using an inbuilt repair utility named “Compact and Repair”. The utility is competent enough to repair your database in most of the corruption scenarios except in below two cases:
Your database is too large
Your database is severely corrupted

If either of the two conditions prove true for you, then you will need to use advanced access repair application to repair your database. These Access Database Repair tools use powerful scanning methods to provide absolute repair of your database after any degree of corruption. These applications come with highly graphical user-documentation that allows you to understand complete repair process. Their non-destructive nature provides safe repair without making changes in the original database file.
