[MSACC2010] Password protect backend?

I have a database built using MS Access 2010 which is a split database. Everything is working fine until some users found out the BE location. *Someone* then managed to change some user details in the tables. Luckily I have backups but I really want to prevent this happening again.

I noticed there is an option to password protect the BE but will this also mean users will have to enter a password when connecting from their FE? If so, are there any other alternatives to keep the BE safe? I was thinking of a simple login form on opening the DB but ultimately this can also be bypassed plus it's a lot of effort just to password protect the BE.

This is a fairly large company so I just wanted to make sure before I commit any changes.

Make your own CODE to lock the database objects

securing the database objects have different ways:
1. Password protect the database
2. Password protect the VB codes
3. Disable allowbypasskey
4. Make MDE file for versions 2003 and previous
5. ULS


a. the simplest way to protect is by password protecting
b. Allowbypasskey diabling is a protection done by vb code
c. by making the MDE file, the forms, report, dap, macro, and modules are locked thereby it cannot be opened for editing or for opening.
d. by making ULS, the objects are locked by access, I think this goes by code again and we setup its password.

Therefore, protecting the database objects were done thru coding matched by password. So therefore, maybe there is a way that we can make our own CODE to lock the database objects.And I think our gurus here in this forum might help us out with that code.Can we do this?
