Attaching existing .mdw file in MS Access 2007 for mdb created in Access 2003
Posted on 2011-03-08
I have an existing MSA 2003 which I need to attach existing .mdw security. We no longer have MSA 2003 and cannot have it installed due to company policy. I am not permitted to create a new security file and have to use the existing company .mdw as a matter of Company Policy.
I have investigated MSA 2007 and tried:
Database Tools, Users and Permissions, User-Level Security Wizzard, but it only allows me to 'Create a new workgroup information file'.
I know if I had MSA 2003 installed then I could attach the .mdw and all would be fine, but as I have mentioned earlier, the company will not permit any other versions to be installed.
Does anyone know how this is done?
