How can I decrypt or gain access to a protected Access database?

The chances are pretty good that the .mdw file is the workgroup file for that .mdb database. (The .mdw file does not need to have the same name as the .mdb file because several different .mdb files can all share the same workgroup security settings.)

To access an .mdb file that has user-level (workgroup) security enabled you need to open it using a shortcut (or command-line invocation) of the form

"C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice14MSACCESS.EXE"
"C:UsersPubliculsulsTest.mdb" /WRKGRP "C:UsersPubliculsSecurity.mdw"
