    How to create a Multi User login with user levels

    I need to create a multi-user with user levels such as admin, and read only access database I created. I curently made a login with a password to get in the database but I want to only allow certain people to just have read-only access. I may have to discard the login I created that I found on line to make this work. I have Access 2007 and I have the database split (FE and BE).

    Is there a vbscript with directions that I can use to pull their network login as their username and the password I supply them which will give them the appropriate security level I set for them?

    Can get the network user name with: Environ("UserName") - yes, type it exactly as shown. What I do is get the network user name to control user privileges on forms (disable command buttons). I don't have password because I assume if the network verified password they are valid users. Check this

    I need to be able to build the vba coding, form and table to give the user the ability to login set by the windows logon and the permissions I set.
