Hello Friends
I have a software developed in vb6.0
the software has few textboxes and we have to type in it and the query is fetched
and matching result is displayed
It uses MS Access 2000 MDB format
Somehow i have managed to open the access file but when i open it
its all encrypted , masked so is there a way to remove the encryption and convert into readable format ?
The software decryptes the database and then displays the result
Thanks

And you have the source of this VB6 program? Surely you can find how it is encrypted.

For the Encryption/Decryption you should have a key if you don`t have a key so you should know which one algorithm used for Enc/Dec so could you tell me do you have a key?

Well the database(MS Access MDB) was password protected so i have that password to open the database and i have no idea about the key its a file or characters or something ? Where exactly its located in the database ?

Well i already have the password of the file it just that the database is not in readable format all garbage values is has something with masking i guess
