Microsoft Access User and Group command are not available

In our .accdb version of the database, the User and Group account and User and Group permissions are displayed on the top ribbon, but not available.   Why?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The .accdb format does not use those methods. ULS went out with the .mdb format.

If you have a .mdb file that you load into 2007+, and you have those commands set to display on your ribbon, you'd see them and be able to work with them.

We are selling this to Animal Control Shelters and need the security.  Can I just change the extension or should I import the existing into a new database as .mdb?

You'd have to import to a new database using the .mdb format.

Just as an aside, you should move away from using ULS security as soon as you can so you don't get stuck.

 You can do your own, or using something like this:

 Right now, Access 2013 and up only supports JET 4.0 format (the last version of the MDB format).   I don't know when that will end (if ever as JET was used for a lot of things besides Access), but you should be considering other options.

We do use Peters Software on our version, but I cannot include that when we sell a version.  I am sure that would be a license violation.

That would depend on the license you have.   If you have a single license, then you'd need to upgrade for $275:

 But it's good your already using it.   At least now you know what's involved should it come to the point where you can no longer support the MDB format.
