Unanswered: Database Security Question and best practices.
I'm building a system which will be stored on a server that will have several user types, whom will have or should have access to different controls.
I have a table with all the user info and level of access preset.
My question, is there a way to have MS Access upon loading the database, call the network, local computer, and get the login user name then cross check it off the table of users to varify the user? Windows XP pro is what OS we are using.
Would it just be better to keep the security stuff 'in house' and just have the users have ID's and passwords they have to use each time the open the system?
This is the first time I've ever had to do somthing like this, so examples of syntax or references to, and or an explination of what the syntax is doing would be, well, it would just be awesome and very much appreciated.
