I have this old wallet which has funds in it. I was a bit out of business and went out of town. I recently try to create get back but poor me I miss place my credentials lucky I was able to fine my wallet address so I read around I find out there is a way to get my funds back by import it into a new account. I did that it work perfectly but I cant access the funds because I don't have the private keys, so I want to know if there is a way I can do to get back the private keys of the old wallet or how I can transfer the account into the new wallet. thanks
If you do not have the private keys, you will be unable to spend the coins. Knowing a public key or bitcoin address will not allow you to figure out the private keys to an address. The bitcoin blockchain is a public record, so you can look up any address you'd like, but you will not be able to spend the coins they contain unless you know the private key.
You'll need to get access to your wallet, or use a backup of your wallet to be able to spend your coins again.
