N Murphy writes "We have a database that seems to be secured with passwords and our original developer has left?"

Answer: This depends on the level of security. If the developer secured the database correctly it may not be possible. In the majority of cases this level of protection is not necessary and rarely implemented. Try creating a new database and copying all the data objects from the original into the new database.
