MSQuery on a secure database

Hello all,

I recently applied the User Level Security Wizard to assign group permissions on a database.. everything works fine, exept that I had some external queries that pulled data to Excel through MSQuery. The query tries to access the database WITHOUT asking for a login or password then says I do not have the required permissions to access the data..

How do I set the query to ask for a login & pw?

Thanks in advance for any tips or workarounds..

If you connect to the database using an odbc connection then you can simply provide your username and password in the connection string.

"Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};Dbq=C:\mydatabase.mdb;Uid=YourUserName;Pwd=YourPassword;"
