I have just tried to log on as usual to my database and it says that
my username is not recognised, what can I do?? It hasn’t been changed,
as I’m the only one who is an administrator, so the only one that can
change it, and nobody else has been on since I was last logged on
anyway. I have tried logging on as another member of staff too and
this also says username not recognised. I think there has been a
fault somewhere, but I don’t know what. Please can you help?August 8, 2011 at 8:36 am #32857
Thanks for your question.
Firstly, please check that you are logging on to the correct database. Most commonly this problem occurs because a user has inadvertently selected the “Sample Database” (or a different database) on the logon screen and is entering their logon details to the wrong database.
If that’s not the case, then are you 100% SURE that you’re entering the details exactly correctly? For example :-
– In COv4 onwards usernames are all lowercase by default whereas previously they were UPPERCASE (“JSMITH” or “JSmith” is not the same as “jsmith”)
– Have you incorrectly put a white-space character between an initial and surname? (e.g. “j smith” instead of “jsmith”)
– Have you accidentally put a space before or at the end of the username? (“jsmith ” is not the same as “jsmith”)
If none of the above suggestions work then you could try running a database check by clicking TOOLS | CHECK & REPAIR just in case there is a physical problem with the database (although it is incredibly rare) and then try to logon again.
Hope this helps!August 8, 2011 at 12:08 pm #32858
Another suggestion would be to take a backup of your database (TOOLS | BACKUP) and then restore a backup from a couple of days ago when you are sure that you could log on. This will identify whether the problem is a technical issue with your database.
Failing that, it will probably be best to follow the advice in this post and upload your database for our technicians to look at :-

Their username had been entered in UPPERCASE, and they were typing it in lowercase.
