No permissions for Database, but have .mdw file. How can I edit it t gain acces to Db?
Posted on 2008-10-27
I have an .mdb that a previous Access developer created. Unfortunately, the developer left no documentation and no security credentials. : ( My boss has charged me with cleansing some of the data from the database and changing the security so that that databse can be used. I do not have admin rights (or the admin password) for the database. An MDW file was set up for use with the database. I do have the .mdw file.
I need to know how I can open and edit the database and make changes to the security. I don't have much experience with Access, so please be gentle. : )
Thanks in advance.
