    Unanswered: Access Security

    I recently moved an Access Database to a Network Drive, I set up user and group accounts and permissions.

    They all work fine from my computer but if they are accessed from any other computer the security is not there. Everyone has access to everything and are not required to log in.

    HELP!!

    Hi,

    Of course!
    When you set the permissions, you're setting it only in your access, and not in the application. So when you copy the application to another computer, the access there has no group accounts seted up. You have to set up that in every machine that has access.

    have you set up those other computers to use the same workgroup?

    or failing that are you using a desktop shortcut with the workgroup as part of the shortcut?
