How to create user login form (MS Access 2000 - 2003)
I have a table called "users", it has two fields "username" and "password".
I have a form called "User Login Form". It has two text boxes and a button as following:
I would like to link these textboxes with a table. The idea is that the user must enter his/her username & password in the mentioned text boxes. Then, the user will press the enter button.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I created the access files in Access 2000 - But now we moved to Access 2003 - But when I try to edit or create forms in the access files created with 200 version, access takes the properties of 2000 - not 2003. For example, when I create the command button, it looks like the 2000 button not the 2003 button (good looking) how to convert the access files created in 2000 to 2003.
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.
Did anyone know and have a example of how to create a user login and session? I want to track who's login and what form or function/menu user can use base on series of permision level that he/she can use in certain access database system. Basically I can create the login form but dont know how to create a login session. The reason is if user click on certain menu that they dont have permision like (administration menu), access will not allow
Question: I want to deploy an Access 2003/XP/2000/97 application. The forms have non-default colors. When I test the application over the network the colors change to access default or desktop default. How can I force my colors to the user screen?
In my Microsoft Access database I have a table of Users, each with a user name and password, and a login form set up. I want the user name and password entered into the login form to be compared against those stored in the Microsoft Access table. If a match is found the user is allowed to access to the system, if not the system should exit.
Answer » The following details one procedure that could be applied to this scenario. There are many more approaches to this and also other areas that will need to be secured within your database environment. You should also look into Disabling/Enabling the Shift Bypass Key.
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.
The db is Access 2000. It works in Access 2000 and 2003. But if the same db is opened in 2007 it does not work?
Here is the problem. There is an Access 2000 db that has a main form and sub-form. The sub-form is in 'Single Form' view and they are linked together.
Normally after you select a record on the main form and click on the sub-form you can use the mouse roller wheel (what is it called?) to scroll through the child records.
This works fine if you open the db using access 2000 or 2003. However, if you open the exact same program file (mdb) using 2007 it does not work. I have been able to click on the sub-form and use the [Page Up] and [Page Down] buttons but this clearly is not the same (or as easy) as using the mouse roller wheel.
Has anyone heard of this or know of a possible solution?
I have a created a Billing system for a school with MS Access 2007 and would like a incorporate a login system to prevent unauthorised access in to the database. This system must have Administrator and user privileges and must allow both the Administrator and users to modify username and password.
Again, only the Administrator is subjected to modifying the database itself.
This system should be a multi-user type. In short, just like what is Ms Access 2003.
- I am coding in access 2003 - but the database is in access 2000 format. I have a 'menu' form that contains buttons that transfer the user to other databases in the system. I am using VBA to do the transfer and am using create object, opencurrentdatabase, and openform commands. The program works beautifully on my computer - xp server -- but as soon as I move it to another computer (xp) I cannot get the secondary databases to open. Problem is that when a button is clicked - the screen flashes - but nothing else -- then I find that an additional copy of msaccess.exe shows up in the windows process links - but I cannot get the db to show up.I hope I explained this somewhat clearly.I am wondering if the issue could be the references checked on my development system - or the fact that I am using 2000 format on a 2003 system.
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!
