    Unanswered: encrypt/decrtypt info

    Maybe I am missing something embarassingly obvious, but I just cannot seem to find any information within Access about wheter or not the current db is encrypted or not. Moreover, after encryptiong a db, and opening it in Access, when I choose Encrypt/decrypt from the menu and expect to be getting the Decrypt dialog box, Access is showing the Encryption dialog... Is this normal behaviour, or could there be something wrong with either my db or my Access installation? (Access 2002/XP)

    I can see in a text editor that the db has been encrypted though, easy to see when comparing a copy of the previous version of the db with the new one. But is there not a way within access to check for this?

    Question Re: encrypt/decrtypt info

    Anybody who knows if there is a way to see the encryption status within a database?

    - And how to use the Decryption option on a db that is already encrypted, but the dialog box suggests Encrypt instead of Decrypt when choosing the Encrypt/Decrypt menu choice ...
