No Read Permissions on MSysAccounts / Problems with users

I've not added or altered any users to Access for quite a while - a number of years in fact. I've just gone into Tools->Security->User And Group Permissions, and I get the following Error :

Record(s) cannot be read - no read permission on 'MSysAccounts'.

The dialogue box then opens with nothing under the Users or Groups under the permissions tab. Under the object name field though, are all my objects.

Im getting the same error message on 'Tools->Security->User And Group Accounts' too.

I have all the hidden tables showing in the database window (MSysImexSpecs and the rest) but MSysAccounts does not show (Im not sure that it should though).

Anyway, if anyone can help me get my users and groups back i'd be very appreciated!

Thanks,
Matt.

Yes, it was originally Access 2.0. It's been converted to Access 97 and then to 2000.

The guy that originally created the workgroup file no longer works here, so when it says "you are supposed to recreate all of the user/group info in exactly the way you did originally" - I have no idea how it was originally done, so any PID information is presumably lost.

Im just wondering if I recreated the workgroup file myself based on what I do know about the workgroup file - ie a few usernames and passwords - and imported all the tables etc into a new database when logged in as the main user - would all privileges then revert to me / the user that imported the data?

Thanks again,
Matt.

Im not sure exactly, you could take copies of everything then try it to see what happens

To be honest, I have never done this operation so I cannot comment otherwise I could give you duff info

Well, it worked eventually. I had to set up all the vb references again, but job done. Thanks.
