Protected database and datacontrol

Problem with datacontrol and protected database using VB4-16 bit and DAO
I can't access the secured database with the datacontrol
Database LANG.MDB is open for all
Database SUPP.MDB is protected, ADMIN have no rights and John have all rights
This example have one form with a datacontrol called dbSupplier

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Dim wslanguage As Workspace
  Dim wsdata As Workspace
  Dim dbl As Database
  Dim dbs As Database
  Dim tlanguage As Recordset
  Dim rsSupplier As Recordset

  DBEngine.IniPath = App.Path & "\" & "MYSYDB.INI"
  Set wslanguage = DBEngine.CreateWorkspace("wslanguage", "Admin", "")
  Set dbl = wslanguage.OpenDatabase("LANG.MDB")
  Set tlanguage = dbl.OpenRecordset("Language", dbOpenTable)
  tlanguage.Index = "Primarykey"

  Set wsdata = DBEngine.CreateWorkspace("wsData", "John", "secret")
  Set dbs = wsdata.OpenDatabase("SUPP.MDB")
  Set rsSupplier = dbs.OpenRecordset("Supplier", dbOpenDynaset)
 
  rsSupplier.MoveFirst
  Do While Not rsSupplier.EOF           ' This works fine
    Debug.Print rsSupplier("Name")
    rsSupplier.MoveNext
  Loop
 
  Set dbSupplier.Recordset = rsSupplier
  dbSupplier.Refresh                    ' No permission !
 
  ' It seems like the datacontrol still uses the rights form the default
  ' workspace - Workspace(0)
End Sub

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I thing the problem might be with the line:-

Set dbSupplier.Recordset = rsSupplier

Try this instead :-

Set dbSupplier.Recordset = dbs.OpenRecordset("Supplier", dbOpenDynaset)

This is straight from the book!  Hope it helps..

This example creates a new Microsoft Jet Workspace object and a new ODBCDirect Workspace object and appends them to the Workspaces collection. It then enumerates the Workspaces collections and the Properties collection of each Workspace object. See the methods and properties of the Workspace object or Workspaces collection for additional examples.

Sub WorkspaceX()

      Dim wrkNewJet As Workspace
      Dim wrkNewODBC As Workspace
      Dim wrkLoop As Workspace
      Dim prpLoop As Property

      ' Create a new Microsoft Jet workspace.
      Set wrkNewJet = CreateWorkspace("NewJetWorkspace", "admin", "",dbUseJet)
      Workspaces.Append wrkNewJet

      ' Create a new ODBCDirect workspace.
      Set wrkNewODBC = CreateWorkspace("NewODBCWorkspace", "admin", "", dbUseODBC)
      Workspaces.Append wrkNewODBC

' Enumerate the Workspaces collection.
      For Each wrkLoop In Workspaces
            With wrkLoop
                  Debug.Print "Properties of " & .Name
                  ' Enumerate the Properties collection of the new
                  ' Workspace object.
                  For Each prpLoop In .Properties
                        On Error Resume Next
                        If prpLoop <> "" Then Debug.Print "    " &       prpLoop.Name & " = " & prpLoop
                        On Error GoTo 0
                  Next prpLoop
            End With
      Next wrkLoop

      wrkNewJet.Close

wrkNewODBC.Close

End Sub
