    Exclamation Unanswered: Eep. Urgent... deleted my security.mdw file. Can I recover?

    Hi,
    I was trying to fix an earlier problem I posted below, and I deleted the security.mdw file for my access database. Now I can't even get in! :*(

    Need help..

    -Cherish

    Hello,

    I was dumb. I have been working on a database on my company's server, and then I ran the "security wizard." Unfortunately, it does not let me have exclusive access to my source file now.

    I set myself up as an administrator, and from a shortcut it generated on my desktop, I can log in and still access my tables and other design stuff. However, when I go to the filepath where the database lives, it just kind of laughs at me and won't let me have exclusive use. It doesn't even let me log in.

    Now if I was the only one using it, it wouldn't be a problem, but I need to install this lil guy on everyone's laptops, and they're going to need something more than read-only access.

    Can anyone tell me what stupid thing I might have done, and perhaps how to reverse it?

    Thanks!

    I will now proceed to bang my head against the wall. Stupid stupid stupid...

    Time to bail ... Create a new DB and import your objects from the old one ...
    Back to Access ... ADO is not the way to go for speed ...
