    Database Security (Access 2000)

    I'm about to set up security on a database. Any tips? Any gotchas?

    TIA

    Lots. If the search engine was up, I would recommend searching this forum.

    Since it is down, I would recommend searching comp.databases.ms-access on google, or the AccessD archives (http://www.wolfwares.com/accessd)

    Read the Tutorial on security on <!profile=WendellB>WendellB<!/profile>'s website - his profile contains a link.
    The tutorial contains links to a number of very useful sources of information.

    Obvious tip: make a backup copy of your database before starting.
    Slightly less obvious tip: don't secure using your standard workgroup file System.mdw. Create a new one. (After reading the above, this will make sense)

    I get several debug errors with my IE6.x browser, but the PDF file is a nice detailed tutorial on security.
