    Unhappy Unanswered: MS Access database -- not authorized/permission

    I am getting message that I don't have authorization to open access database. It is access 97 and I am trying to open with 2000. The guy who created it is no longer here and database is not password protected. Any ideas how i could give myself authorization to this database so I could get to its components. Any help is much appreciated.

    Sounds like you might need to join a certain workgroup file to access that database.

    By default, you are get access to mdb's through the system.mdw file located on your machine (typically in winnt\system32). If the database you are trying to access has its own mdw, you will have to join it. You can do so by running WRKGADM.EXE (also typically located in winnt\system32).

    MS Access database -- not authorized/permission

    hmm.... These are the corruption errors which comes in access database by Microsoft Jet Engine Database. Your problem is not that much tough as you are thinking you can read the article to fix the errors.
