I have a client that has a database that can only be opened with a shortcut. When I look at the shortcut it is opeing the database using the /wrkgrp swith and is specifying a workgroup. When it comes to workgroups and security my skills are weak. Can anyone tell me how I can access the database directly? When I double click the database it tells me I don't have permission. All I want to do is to link to a table in the database. Any thought?
