How to add/remove users in MS-Access 2015.

How to add/remove users in MS-Access 2015.

we had an access database (ms-access 2005) which allowed dbas to define add/remove users' access to the database.
The software team installed ms-access 2015 and now the tab where you defined/removed users, is gone. Is there any way to add/remove users' access in 2015?

RE: How to add/remove users in MS-Access 2015.

There is no MS Access 2015. Earlier versions of Access using the MDB file format had a system of User Level Security (ULS) which was removed when they came out with Access 2007 (accdb file format). It isn't clear from your post if your database used ULS or some other solution for managing users.

sorry, it is ms-access 2013
we were using ms-access 2003
how can we get around this removal of user level security so that we can add new users, please?


RE: How to add/remove users in MS-Access 2015.

You may be able to use the existing MDB files as long as you don't convert them. There are a number of good resources on the web such as this article. You may have lots of work ahead of you if you want to implement some form of security that isn't ULS.

Check out Garry's article.
