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
