    Unanswered: Setting up Access DB users on a Network.

    Does anyone have a good link for this? I have a book with a good chapter about setting up users. But I'm not sure how it applies to different users on a network DB. Thanks.

    If you are looking to run your application in a multi user environment, you will need to secure your DB. Microsoft Access security is not for the faint hearted. Here is a link to get you started. It's a bit long, but well worth the effort.

    My understanding was that from a technical perspective you don't necessarily need to secure the DB but that everyone using a database as multi-user must connect to a common .mdw file for record locking and concurrency control.
    However, securing the database is a good idea because it then forces everyone to use the .mdw file to connect. Just make sure everyone uses the same .mdw file and doesn't take separate copies of it!
