    Unanswered: Secured data with Access 2000

    Hello,

    I have a securited database (groups, users, password, ...).
    I know how to disable/enable the shift key; then users can't access to the data.
    I know how to crypt the database.
    But, users can always acces to the data : create a new database and import data from the secured database.
    Is there any solution to avoid it ?

    Thanks for help.

    if you password protect the database then people will need to put in the password to import to and link to the tables.

    the best way to do this is to create a new database with all the data tables in it as a backend. password protect that and then link to the tables from the frontend you have developed. that way no one can get to the data unless they know the password.

    don't forget the password or you will not be able to get to it either!

    Why not create an extra group for backend access, users not in this group cant open/use the backend directly.

    but if they wanted to they would still be able to create a new database and import all the information in. the only way to stop this being done is to password protect the database
