    Did you follow the instructions carefully? One of the things it normally does is create a backup of your database, so you should be able to do that. Why were you running the security wizard?

    I want to hide my macros and if possible the code behind my forms.
    I'm bringing my app over to my customer and I feel she might rip off my code.
    She is running 2000 I have 2002 and saving in 2000 but can't make an MDE file.
    I'm thinking of installing 2000 on the same computer buy am worried I might have a
    problem running both.

    An MDE is the best way to do that without invoking the extra baggage of Access security. So make the MDE on her system so the design of forms, reports, macros and modules cannot be viewed. Using security is a good practice if you want to track users in a multi-user environment, and with proper application can make a system pretty airtight, but you don't appear to be working in a multi-user environment.
