You cannot reset it.

Try Admin as the Account name without any password on the off hand chance you left it as the default.

I have tried the admin without a password. so there is no backdoor to a filemaker database? do you know of any third party software the will reset the password?

Since passwords are not stored in the file, they cannot be reset. There are utilities that strip out the credentials and replace them with their own versions. This process damages the file.

Think a bit about the passwords you used. Remember passwords are case sensitive.
