    Password Protection With a Table

    Hi, I have taken over the running of our units databases certain areas of which are password protected. We need to change the passwords on these.


    It looks as though these are set up in a table in the back end, however when I change the passwords in the table then try them out, its just like entering an incorrect password. I cannot then re-set the password to the old setting.
    Any help or any light anyone can shed on this would be very helpful

    What makes you believe the passwords are "set up in a table in the back end"?

    I have found through various searches how my predecessor did it. I just cannot work out how to change it. I believe there may be "hidden" tables which I cannot locate?

    You should be able to go to File>Options>Current Database>Navigation>Navigation Options (button) and display all Hidden and System objects.
