    restricting access until logged in


    I have designed a log in form and it works well, the problem is that when the db starts up with the login page the navigation bar and all the controls are still available to select.(therefore someone could just go in and change the code or look at any form or table they want). How can i limit any access to the db until logged in.

    Can set project properties that disable the ribbon, QAT, and shortcut menus. Click File>AccessOptions>CurrentDatabase>make choices.

    Holding shift key when project opens will override those settings.

    Here is an article about more advanced methods to secure Access file
    To provide db: copy, remove confidential data, run compact & repair, zip w/Windows Compression. Attachment Manager is below Advanced editor window, click Go Advanced below Quick Reply window.
