    Unanswered: .MDE with Oracle or Sql Server

    I had posted a message here about a client who has a number of databases (Access 97, Oracle 8i, and Sql Server) with system.mda being used for the security. I had asked how to convert the system.mda, but now I find out the client wants to use a .MDE to provide security. I have created .MDEs, but never with Oracle or Sql Server being used for the backend. Can that be done? If so, how?

    Make sure that security is used in the correct context.

    mde files only protect the design model of the database (forms/reports/code), but NOT the data.

    You can link to any backend database like you would with a mdb file.
