I set my master password over 10 years ago and I can't remember it. How can I reset my master password?

    Hi Lou. For obvious security reasons, you can't change the master password unless you know the current password. You'll have to send the file to AccountEdge to have the password reset. Call them at 800-322 6962.

    I called 800-322-6962 and was told to reply to an email and I would be given directions about sending my file.

    I have done that twice in the last week and have yet to get any directions for sending my data file.

    Will I be able to continue using my data file after I send to you?

    Looks like email went to you at 6/24/10, 11:13 AM ET. Instructions would be in that email.

    If you didn't get that email, please check spam trap. Otherwise contact Customer Service, again.

    Natasha you can try log in with out an administrator password if that doesnt work you can send your file to Acclivity to have them remove the password for you. Another option would be to restore a backup before you had issues logging into your file.
