Default Editing Access and import data

Hello....I am not used to for creating system from Access, so i'd like to share me some info/help for this.

There is an existing system from Access, and when I initially checked it I noticed that there is not secured. So it is possible for me to edit and add a new function for this?.

And also could I import some other data(Clipper/.dbf) from other system and transfer the data to this Access system? by not using an import command in the menu but having a new button that has a command to get the data from the source....

Hope you help me through this.....tnx =)

For the import bit, you can use DoCmd.Import

With the security thing - what is it you're trying to do????

I am a loud man with a very large hat. This means I am in charge

OK what i mean is the system from Access that i have to rebuild doesnt have a security password, we could create a password before we could open the .mdb but i do not know if there is another security other than that, coz it'll cause me a time consuming if i continue the system then in the middle i distinguish that there is something i could'nt do or edit the system because some of it has a security or something else....it is better to work from the start ill use vb6 but the system is too big to begin and the company are already using the existing one(access). The problem is they want some functions to be added to the system, import records from another system etc.

Hope you could help me from this, tnx.
