How can i see in a module in an access 2.0 database.
I can open the mdb but i have no rights to read the module.
Is there a trick to see the module anyhow ?

You can bypass all the security files by running the wrkgadm.exe in the access directory.  You should then create a new user group, over write the existing one.  No security checks will take place when you enter Access now.

Can i do this for only one MDB, so no other users/programmers will have problems with this ?

No, you can't . . . otherwise it wouldn't be secure. I'd suggest getting permission to read the module from the db administrator.
