I am trying to create a new user in the Security but it is asking for a 4 character PID.  I don't know what to enter.  Someone created ones for Security users already but I understand Access hides.  How can I see what they are - is there any way. I am using Access2000.

Hi lcan4,

Why does it matter what the others are?  
You can enter any string of characters for the PID.  This could be something meaningful to you or it could be just a string of unrelated letters and numbers.
You should keep a written record of the PID for each username in a secure place just in case you ever need to re-create the user details.

There is nothing in Access which will now show you what the previous entries were, although if the security wizard was previously used it would have produced a report listing the values.  You can probably buy programs on the net which will do it though.
