Access 2016 - User-Level Security

Greg_L_WER asked
Last Modified: 2015-12-16
I'm currently working on converting my Access 97 software to Access 2016.  So far the conversion appears to have worked well though I'm currently trying to figure out my best route to replace my users/user group access permissions into something that Access 2016 will use.  My thought was to build 3 new tables (Users/passwords, Groups & user/group assignments) and a login page that would access these tables when ever a certain permission was required.  Does this sound logical?
