Securing Access 2007 Frontend

I have a fairly complex Access 2007 frontend the links back to Microsoft SQL Server Express. I want to release this frontend to one of our satellite offices so that they can update some of the information rather than have them e-mail the information to Head Office where it is rekeyed.

I have tried to secure the database by using the "Make ACCDE". However this fails. The message suggest this is because the Frontend is too complex. Is there any other way I can prevent Users from getting into the background? All I want to do is to prevent an "intelligent" user from access to the underlying data tables.

Thanks

Not easily. The message says "Microsoft Office Access was unable to create the.sccde, .mde or .ade file"

That was a good tip.

In short this was a misleading message. You have to elimiante the errors in the Modules and it will then create an ACCDE file. Which I have done.

Thanks for your help.
