msaccess security help

dhenderson12 asked
Last Modified: 2015-03-17
I have a msaccess database (.mdb) file.  it is located on a network share.  The shortcut only points to the mdb, NOT to a workgroup file, yet the users are prompted  to login with username and password.  This is an old system that was migrated to Access 2013 (most likely not correctly).  I need to add users but have no idea what workgroup file this database is pointing to.  I looked in the SysWOW64 and System32 folders for System.mdw, but no luck.  Any help greatly appreciated.
