Unanswered: You do not have the necessary permissions to use MDB objects
I got secured MS Access database. But when I'm trying to open it, the error appears 'You do not have the necessary permissions to use MDB objects...'.
Also I got a MDW file, but still I can not open that databse.
Maybe someone can help me to find out the solution how to open it?
Can you ask the developer of the database to assist?
I can see only 3 possibilities:
1. Using the wrong MDW file.
2. Logging in with the wrong credentials.
3. The MDE file is wrongly configured.
Are you sure you're logging in with the right credentials?
Yes, I mean /wrkgrp switch.
That's the problem, that I don't know who developed this database. I'm using it for my studies and I need to export some recods from this database to my own.
In MDW file I saw, that user, which has read-only access exist. But when I'm trying to open this DB, I'm not asking enter credentials. Just my mentioned error appears.
Does any workaround exist for this problem? Can I re-configure MDW file or I should use the same windows account? I don't know what else I can do.
Then the MDW file may be wrong or wrongly configured. Did you do something hacky... like remove the password for the Admin user? If it doesn't prompt for a User/Password when you use the shortcut, you're using the Admin user which, despite it's name, normally gives you zero access.
It has nothing to do with the windows account btw.
Have you tried using IMPORT from your database rather than trying to open the "stolen" database to export?
