Default You don't have permission

I have been given an Access database (2002) to modify. The application has been used for about 2 years but now needs modification. I used the Admin id and password to look at the database but cannot open any objects. Get 'You don't have permission to read '____'. I have tried using another ID, exporting the objects and copying the database. Get the same message. The owner of the database and each of the objects is listed as <unknown>. Help. - Thanks Len.

Try going to the "modules" tab in you database window. Open a module and search for "password". You can usually find the database password in a module.

Hope this helps!

There aren't any modules - the person who wrote it used macros.

I haven't worked with macros yet. I am assuming they can be searched for permissions, usernames, id's or passwords also.

Macros can change controls and properties on forms and reports. Macros can also change existing data in the database tables, so be careful before you make any changes. I suggest making a back-up copy of the entire database.
