First of all I will explain what I am trying to do.  I am running a MS Access front end with MySql backend.  I have a login form that authenticates the user from tblUsers table.  I have done this so I have the control to only permit certain people see certain forms and so on.  What I would like to do is use the username and password to authenticate the MySQL DB so I can have much tighter control on Viewing, editing, deleting, adding of records.  Any ideas how I can perform this task? Thanks in advance
