Error : User cannot access a database

I have just taken over a database done by someone else. I notice that using certain IDs, they can access this database based on their dept and certain IDs will display this msg.

"Database is not fully initialised yet (It does not contain any views). You will have to use 'Replicate...' on the 'File, Replication' menu to initialise it"

Can anyone tell me what i need to do to allow other IDs to access it too. I have given authorisation to these Ids but to no avail

Usually this message appears whenever the database has NoAccess for the default entry. So user who is not explicitly listed in the ACL will have the default access, which will be NOAccess. Hence Notes prompts that msg. Mostly the msg is unclear and cannot be interpreted easily.

Good Luck

Could you please tell me whether it is Manager ROLE or Manager ACCESS.

I think the views have their own security, seperate from the ACL, in that case. u have to go into the view design and check the security tab in the view properties, see if there is only some names/groups listed in there.

Hi Megaria

Check the security for the view which is opened when the database is opened intially. That view may have specific security restrictions.
