"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.

vov,

To maintain system integrity for Microsoft Access databases, including the ability to access protected databases, Microsoft Access creates a SYSTEM.MDW database when it is first installed. The SYSTEM.MDW file is used to manage User and Group account names and passwords.

The Visual Basic database engine does not require the SYSTEM.MDW database unless you want to manipulate databases that have Microsoft Access security features enabled. Because Visual Basic does not provide any way to create a SYSTEM.MDW database, it cannot create a secure database. It can, however, modify the security settings in an existing Microsoft Access database (assuming that you have Admin or Owner permission level on the existing database).
