I am bulding an application for the sales department of a company. Salesmen will run this programm on their laptops while they visit the customer or at their home.
The programm uses MS Access for the database needs.

What i need is some sort of basic security for the data the database is currying. Because of the way the application will be run (mobile - database on the same computer) having a user/pass authentication scheme for accessing the db would be obsolete as one could just open the mdb file and fetch all the data (correct me if im wrong).

I tryed to password protect the access db so it would require the correct password when someone tryes to open it, but while the db was password protected i could not access it through visual basic no matter which way i tryed (!).


Has anyone faced a similar need for security? What was your solution?
