Access 2.0 Permissions headache
Posted on 2000-04-10
I need to get permission to view an .mdb that was converted from 2.0.
I can open it from the command line using User and Password and the /workgrp switch.
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\msaccess.exe" C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\cheprg97.mdb /ini D:\WINNT\msacc20.ini /User ABCD /Pwd ABCDE /wrkgrp C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\system.mda
But I want to eliminate the need for all that and be able to open it like any other Access97 program (double-clicking it in the Explorer) - Of course now it tells me that I don't have permission to open it if I don't go in through that command line.
How do I get this database unsecured so I can open it from the Explorer by double-clicking the file name?
