Add an group that can access the archive and set the default to NO ACCESS !

:-)
make sure default and anonymous are set to "No Access" and your username or a group containing your username has manager access.

yup i have tried that, all other groups have no access 'access control' but still when others switch id or even with entering a password it can still be access, need your help. Thanks a lot.

have the user open teh db and click the icon in the lower right  (3rd section in) with the little symbol on it.  (Could be a key, or a feather, or whatever) and when it opens it will show what groups the user is in and how they are accessing.

OH-- it just occurs to me, is this db LOCAL?  Not on a server?  If so, all this means nothing.   If its LOCAL you have to set a property in the ACL that says "Enforce ACL locally" (or something like that).

Beware though, that has lots of caveats with it.

Right click the database icon, choose Database -> Access Control from the context menu, then go to Advanced tab. Put a check next to "Enforce a consistent Access Control List across all replicas of this database". Click OK. The ACL settings will now be obeyed locally as well.

The user could still make a (non-replica) copy of the database and thus bypass this security mechanism if he has physical access to your computer. The only way to provide REAL security on it would be to enable local encryption for the database. This can be done by going to File -> Database -> Properties, then click the Encryption Settings button, then choose the "Locally encrypt this database for <your user id>" option. Choose High, Medium, or Low encryption level depending on how paranoid you are :-) and then click OK. Now even of the user makes a copy of the database, it can never be opened unless they have your Notes ID and its associated password.
