More Help for Setting up Access Security by tlbroadbent
Posted: 29 Sep 01 (Edited 17 Nov 05)

FAQ181-83 outlines the contents of the Microsoft Access Security FAQ. The Security FAQ is an excellent document and must read if you want to setup Access Security. However, many still find Access Security intimidating. Here are some additional Access security resources that will perhaps make the job of securing Access databases slightly less difficult.

ACC2000: Microsoft Access Security Manager Add-In Available in Download Center
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=235961

The security manager is installed as an Access add-in. It shows all security settings in a single view, making administration simpler and easier. It also provides ways to test and save various security settings.

The release notes for the add-in state, "No security administration tool can replace or be used effectively or safely without a fundamental knowledge of how Microsoft Access user-level security works."

Therefore, reading the Security FAQ is still essential to setting up security. There are other net resources that may help those who are learning Access security.

ACC: Overview of How to Secure a Microsoft Access Database
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=254372


The article states, "This article provides an overview of how you can secure a database so that it is not changed or copied by other Microsoft Access users. This article assumes that you have a thorough understanding of the pieces that make up the Microsoft Access security model: workgroups, accounts, ownership, and permissions."

Please let me know if you have a favorite Access Security resource that should be included here.
