How to create a User Login Form in Microsoft Access

In my Microsoft Access database I have a table of Users, each with a user name and password, and a login form set up.

Login form, to form
I have a login form setup in a database that basically uses a table to check for username and password. I would like to be able to use that login information to automatically open a form, that also pulls with it the users login name, and then store the login name to each record the user enters.

I am hung up on how to get the login information to transfer over to the form. Here is the code that controls the login process;

All I need is the username. And then I need it to autopopulate a field in a form.

Login Form...
I've completely forgotten about a 'login' feature to pick up user details. Before you all have a go! I know I'm kicking myself enough already. I have a employee table with all various information and can add a login ID and Password field for but could you please aim me towards any good resources which will show me how to keep the 'login' details in the back ground please.

My initial thought was to create a login form to open when the app opens, then create a form to sit in the background with username / date / access level athen to load my 'home' form where they access all the relevent features of the application.If this is a valid option whats my way forward or am I barking up the wrong tree!


Access 2007 (Current User)
I used to use Access 2000, now our office has upgraded to Access 2007. I was told that rather than having a separate user list internal to the database to pull Current User based on the login and password entered, I could use the Windows login information instead.

Is there a different built in function that will pull the computer login information rather than the DB access login.

When I use (Current User) now it simply enters Admin in the field since no user login information is in the new database.


How to create a Multi User login with user levels
I need to create a multi-user with user levels such as admin, and read only access database I created. I curently made a login with a password to get in the database but I want to only allow certain people to just have read-only access. I may have to discard the login I created that I found on line to make this work. I have Access 2007 and I have the database split (FE and BE).

Is there a vbscript with directions that I can use to pull their network login as their username and the password I supply them which will give them the appropriate security level I set for them?

Creating a Multi-User Login
I am trying to create a multi-user login. When I create this in a 'sample' database it works fine. I create three forms and one login form with the appropriate VB code. No problems,

The problem is when I try to create the exact same login, in my actual database, for some reason it does not work. I checked all the names and so on but cannot seem to get it to work.


Login form with special condition
I'm still newbie with ACCESS n VBA code.
I have a form and a table login(user, password, role)where user can login with username and password by referring to Login table.
....
How can I view the role in MsgBox according to username and password in table login? I'm having trouble in here (Underline words). The Logic is if username and password has been filled and then search in table. If Its TRUE then it will show MsgBox with the role user in table Login.

Or do you have any better codes for this?


Access DB Lock Out
I have not been here for sometime now, but just had a blond moment and locked myself out of my database. I know there must be a way to get back into the DB with some programming code inanother database,

What Happen? - I created a login form, where a user enters the login details. It was working fine and I loaded the login form as the form to open when access starts. Each time I open the DB I can see access 2007 popping up before the login form shows, also the background appears.

I was trying to get rid of the background and the access 2007 start screen. I just wanted the login form to show. I then changed the following controls:

Allow Add. = No
Allow Del. = No
Allow Edits = No
Allow Filters = No
Data Entry = No

I saved the form and THEN.

When I started the DB, it do not do the required results and it would not allow me to enter the user details to login. all this said, I cannot access the db to change.

SOmetime back I result some DAO process where you can access another database and not the current one. I would like to do similar code to reset the password on the useraccess table so whenI start my data base it will access a blank password.

How to add a user login form?
I am making a data entry form application for some users. I want to add a user login form when opening the MS Access 2007 database. No password needed.

So, after the application is done, it can be used like that: 1. Give the accdb file to the 1st user. The user can use the login form to find his/her records in a main form (that is bound to a main table used to collect data), and then modify existingrecords or add new records at the end of the main form.
2. Give the accdb file to the 2nd user. The user can use the login form to find his/her records, and then modify existing records or add new records.
3. . (next user)

Multiuser login form
I'm thinking of creating a login form , where user enters username and password before login.

I know that this can be done through a table with all needed information and according to that open a spesific form.
But how about user level permissions?

I have read that this can be done by creating .mdb files but then I can't open a form based on what user has logged in.

Is there a way to combine those two parameters I need?

Login Form that doesn't require password just name
I want to build a login form for my database that doesn't ask for a password, just a name. The reason is I really won't have a problem with security, but I want each entry to have an author listed in case we need to know who did it.

I don't want the user to have to select their name on every entry but just log in once when opening the program and then have that name saved. Howcan I do this? If I keep the login form open then I believe I can figure it out, but I would really like the login form to disappear after selecting a user.


Restricting User Access
I am looking to restrict users to accessing certain forms, tables and reports. I'm not sure what the best way to go by doing this.

Basically there will be two user logins (maybe a 3rd for the Admin). the 1st User logins will be for the Manager and Supervisor (same login and password). They will have full access to the Data etc.

The 2nd Set of user logins are for the rest of the staff. They will all use the same login and password. They will only be able to access one button on the main menu which is a form. Restrictions on certain fields will also be on the Form.

- I'm guessing I need to
A) Create a form for the logins
B) Hide and lock fields from them in the property sheet. And either disable all the buttons except for the one on the main form or Just Hide them. Or is it more technical than this?

which I'm guessing there is especially for the Logins. What do I put in there?

Filter to only view Current User's Records in a Microsoft Access form or query
There may be circumstances where you, as the database developer, may only wish to allow the current user of the Microsoft Access database to view only their own records. This can be achieved using various approaches and you will find one way of dealing with this shown below.
What we need to do to achieve this:
Create a module to capture the Current User accessing the Microsoft Access database.
Store the User Name to pass this to the Microsoft Access forms or queries.
Display information that relates to the Current User only.
