I'm trying to set up user level security in an Access 2003 data base, but under Tools/Security the "User-level Security Wizard" option is greyed out and can't be selected.
How do I enable the wizard ?

Open the requires database. Make sure you have exclusive access. (Use File Open and select the open exclusive option to the right of the filename)

Actually, I don't think that is the issue ... because I have an A2003 mdb open - no Exclusively ... and that menu item is not grayed out.

Do you have a 100% full install in Access - all options were selected when you installed?

DatabaseMX is right, but stupidly I had not even opened a database, just the Access application. I now realise that of course the security is tied to a database, not the Access application.

A supplementary question though, before awarding points, if I may, is there a "short cut" command which would open a database in read only mode ( i.e. from a Windows desktop short cut)?

YES ... I don't know what it is off hand ... no doubt a 'command line; option. I've seen it before in fact.

btw ... no need to feel 'stupid'!  There are NO stupid questions :-}

I found the command line switches at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/209207. So mostly I've sorted this one out myself. Never the less I am awarding some points for assistance given.
Thanks.
