Visio2000 cannot extract column definition for access97 with security

I have an Access97 "database" with security on all objects.  Admin (the default) is disabled.  When I try to reverse engineer a database diagram in Visio2000 for it I get this error on every table and query: "Error! Cannot extract column definition for the table/view [x].  The definition is not available or you may not have sufficient privileges.  Please check with your database administrator."  Yet I am joined to a group that has all priviledges.  Are there some hidden settings for dealing with Access security from Visio?

Hi keyboards,

maybe a workaround, couldn't find more at the moment

is to get all security of the access db, maybe on a copy just for this purpose, don't know if it's possible

The suggestion was a good one (cause it occurred to me as well ;0} ) however, it did not work.  It almost makes me suspect inherent problems between Access97 and Visio2000, which suggests another "workaround", bringing the DB into Access2000 and trying again.

I appologise for the delay in acknowleging; it's been crazy around here.

Hope there are other suggestions, but I'll update this on the outcome of the above test.

Thanks!
