    Access database security file (.mdw) (Access 97)

    Hi All,
    I am maintaining a database, I used to receive the monthly updates from various sites where actual data was collected. These sites have very limited permissions on the database. Now the project is closing and I have to give these centers all the permissions that I have as owner.
    Should I just convey the username and password that I have been using to the centers OR will I have to create a new .mdw file and sent it to them.
    If I need to create new .mdw file please provide some guidance on how to go about it.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    The fastest would be for you to convey the username and password that you have been using.

    But, for possible future use of the database and maintenance, you might want to create a group with the same permissions that you have. Make each site user a member of the group, or, create one user for each site if their are multiple users at each site.

    Sometimes projects that have ended have been resurrected.
