Hi all

Does it really save any purpose to encrypt a database (BE)with a password when some people are saying there are some free software out there that can break the encryption easily , I know for the FE we seam to be fine as long as we only give clients Accde files.

For queries I'm still using a special code to hide special keys( This is also an extra cover to FE objects), unless someone knows my backdoor hot key it will not be possible to unhide the queries.

Though strictly speaking the software is anchored on queries , VBA code  , macros and reports because even if one steal the tables with entity relation , how is it going to help without the treasured code???

Kindly educate me if I'm wrong!
