Using a 2003 mdw file in Access 2007

I have changed a mdw file from an Access 2003 database, I emailed the changed mdw file down to the client and they want to use this file, previously we went to Tools, Security, Join Workgroup but their is no facility for doing this, please can anyone tell me how this works in 2007

The previous Access security has simply been removed in A2007.
Too bad. No solution I know of.

Hi DatabaseMX, many thanks for your comments and the links.  I have found the answer in your link 'Workgroup Administrator utility in Access 2007 - many thanks, I created and ran a RunCommand Macro and it worked perfectly.  I will have to learn all about the new security measures in 2007 but this at least got me over the hurdle with a client.  Thank you again
