Security Permissions

Trap Permissions Error by Garridon
Posted: 6 Mar 02

If you're using Microsoft Security to protect your database, some of your users will get a standard message box when they try to open a form they don't have authorization to access.  This traps the error and provides a chance for you customize the message.

Insert this code into the on click procedure of the button that opens the form.

Private Sub cmdbutton_Click()
On Error GoTo ErrorcmdButton

   DoCmd.OpenForm "frmName", acNormal
    Exit Sub


    ' Traps permissions error message
    If Err = 2603 Then
        MsgBox "You do not have access to this department's records"
        Resume ExitcmdButton
    End If
End Sub
