I previously had some sort of security set up on Access, where each time I opened access up for anything it prompted me for a username and password.   However it does not do this anymore and when I try to open a particular database it displays the following error

run-time error '2603' You don't have permission to run "database name"

NB: "database name" = the name of my database....

There is no security set on the database, the only user is Administrator.  

Any ideas???

Many thanks,
