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

To Patch or not to Patch? That is the question!

Don't get caught out like thousands of others around the world in the recent Ransomware Fiasco!

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!
