    Unanswered: how to log in to access other than admin

    Hi every time I open my access dbase, the current user is "admin" even though my windows login user is "xxxxx"
    if I interrogate the system via advapi32.dll I get logon as "xxxxx" but current user as "admin"
    I've tried to change the owner from "admin" to "xxxxx" but the change button is greyed out
    I'm trying eventually to operate the dbase from google.docs but there are always conflicts when two people are accessing the dbase concurrently

    User's accounts in Access are specific to Access and do not depend on Windows accounts.
    Have a nice day!

    Set a password for the admin account. If there is no password Access will logon as admin.

    Personally id use the nework logon search google for dev ashish api
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
