    Exclamation Unanswered: lostinaccess

    I need to add records and update our program on Access, but someone else that used the program before has it set up where she is the only person who can make changes. Everyone else can only look at it and inquire. How do I get it to let me make changes.

    Well an obvious answer would be to get the username and password of the original developer and simply login as her.

    Security

    I think the previous posters are correct, and you will almost certainly need to contact the previous user. It might be worthwhile, though, to try accessing Security (Tools->Security) and User Permissions. You might be able to change ownership/permissions of tables etc throught that.

    Good luck
