We can't help you. No Adobe application will allow you to open the file
without the password.
Not even Adobe themselves? Is there a way to contact them directly? I tried finding contact info, but it kept sending me to these forums.
No, they can't help you, either.

But... I very much doubt that Adobe is going to be able to help, since the entire idea of using a password is to protect the file, and Adobe is not in the business of "cracking" files
Thanks. I'm hoping that they can help. It's my file...not like I'm trying to open someone else's work. I appreciate the help.
There's no way to prove that. The fact it shows up as "owned" by you in the file properties is meaningless. That's just a permission on your local network. Don't waste your time.
