Or you may need to create the .mdw file in the network. Samples imply using different directories, but you should use your own
I'm sorry, I'm not understanding you... I created this database on my home PC and populated it with some test tables to use with the tutorials in this Access book. It is not on any sort of network, so I'm not sure what you mean.
Basically, I am trying to learn how to create user-level permissions for a project I have at work. I have made a supplier information database that several other people within the deparmtnet will need to use. However, because of confidentiality, these people should not be able to see other people's supplier information, only their own.
To do this, I need more control than a simple global database password. But I have been pulling my hair out trying to understand and get this security stuff to work.
