I have a slight problem, I am creating a database that will be used on a shared drive at my work...everything is fine with it...on my comp. The problem is, when you use someone else's computer it doesn't ask you to log on, even though I already set up the group/user/permission stuff. I eventually figured out that it was the system.mdw file that is controlling this and on someone else's computer it doesn't ask for any user name or password. I was wondering if there is some way I can "redirect" that persons access when they open up my database on the shared drive to look at a system.mdw file that I can put on the shared drive with my database. Thanks for anyhelp, I am a little new to this so please to to explain in terms that I would most likely understand. Also, I am running Access 97 and have Win98. Thanks again!
