OH, my goodness, I wish I had read this a few weeks ago. I got a PDF file, with very important documents and it came with the password. I tried all that I could think and did not find a solution. I was forced to go pick tthe documents physically. Little did I know that you can easily remove the passwords on a PDF file. I have actually tried it on the same document and ti worked like magic. I am happy and now wiser. Thanks for the insight.
