Hello, I have made a login form for a new access database which will contain a simple look up based on username selection from combo box checking to see if the password the user has entered matches that record in a table.  I want to be able to assign users to either be an administrator (i.e. can edit forms, view nav bar etc...) and a user who can only use the switchboard, form controls, and enter data.  What other steps should I take after creating the simple login page to allow this?

Thank you,
Bevo
