    Transferring Ownership (Access 2000>)

    Hi all.
    I don't seem to find Access help on this topic, so I revert to the lounge experts here!

    Assume for all Q's that I am the current administrator:

    1. What is the purpose/reason for transferring the ownership?
    2. If I transfer ownership, what does it allow the new owner to do, ie Are they the new admin?
    3. Can I as the original admin, after transferring ownership, still administer and have full rights to the DB?

    Any other advice or guidelines wellcome on this subject!

    I just want a general understanding of this feature, the pro's and con's etc.

    Tx
    Regards,
    Rudi

    See WendellB's tutorial The Secrets of Security and the links provided there.

    If you want to secure a database at the user level, you should take the default Admin user out of the Admins group, and remove most or all permissions from the Admin user. After you have taken Admin out of the Admins group and revoked the permissions, Admin no longer has full rights to the database. The reason for this is that if someone opens the database with an unsecured workgroup file (.mdw), he/she will automatically log in as Admin.

    You must add at least one other user to the Admins group, to act as the new administrator.
