Reset Administrator Password

Hi All

 

I have a client who has several AccountRight Premier files. For one of them they do not know the administrator password. Is there a reset function? If not, what are their options?

 

Thanks

Mike you can send the file to MYOB to have it removed. If they are not cover customers there is a charge involved.

 

Cheers

Re: Reset Administrator Password

Why does a password need to go to MYOB for reset?

Re: Reset Administrator Password

The file only needs to go to MYOB if the passwords have been lost and forgotten - often people forget where they have put them and MYOB will purge the files of passwords so that a new start can be made.

 

There are 3rd party programs that could be used but we could not guarantee the results.

Re: Reset Administrator Password

We are currently on Version 15 of MYOB.  They have quoted us over $200 to recover our password.  We don't have that sort of money at this time of year.  Any advice?  We used the third party software but it doesn't work.

Re: Reset Administrator Password

Why is it $200, I thought it was only $55 without cover?

 

Did you ever have any other user accounts you may be able to get in with?

 

Have you tried with no password?

 

Have you tried all the passwords you can think of, and that maybe you use on other sites needing a password?

 

Who would have put the password on and have you checked with them?

 

Have you tried admin as the user, with maybe no password?

Re: Reset Administrator Password

Well if it is $200.00 it would seem to be somewhat excessive. It takes all of two minutes to do it. I would be checking that figure. Perhaps it is the expreess service that costs so much.
