How to protect our access database?
How can we hide the left pane and make the tables, queries and reports password protected so that user is only able to work with forms? Moreover I want forms to be only used and be protected from being re-designed.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I created the database by using Microsoft access 2007-I’m a new user of this software. I also save this database in my desktop. One of my employees will take this desktop with him during the weekend just for emergency case. How do I protect my data in the database or is there any ways that I can lock my database? He plans to buy a new computer and I don’t want him to copy my entire database in his new machine.
Password protecting an Access database allows you to protect your sensitive data from prying eyes. In this tutorial, we walk you through the process of encrypting your database and protecting with a password, step by step.
I have developed a small desktop application using visual basic 6 and Ms Access 2003 as back end. Database is password protected and contains sensitive data. As many password retrievaltools are available, What should I do to protect Ms-Access (.MDB )
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.
I have a database on a network drive. IS there a way to protect the database from being deleted?
I am about to start developing a program that downloads a database, and accesses the data within it. I need to somehow protect the data within the database so it cannot be copied, or misusedby other companies who can get the information within the database.
So I need a way that the database can be downloaded from a server (Updated regularly), used by the program, but at no stage be able to be opened, copied etc by the user.
How can I do this in VB?
There are two parts to the following video tutorial explaining how to password protect the back end of your Microsoft Access database where your first need to split the database and then exclusively open the back end database to apply an encrypted password. You can also manually link and re-link tables from other databases which will in turn need to be individually password protected should you require the added protection for the more sophisticated system.
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
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?
How do I protect my Access database? Experienced developer's always suggest placing the database outside of the web root. Most developers suggest that you get a real Relational Database Management System...
I split a database and password protected the backend and relinked them to the front end of the database. After learning that access stores the backend pw after it has been entered I've been trying to find a way to protect the table data.
Is there a way to make the tables read only? or make users re-enter the backend pw everytime they try to access the tables?
PS Why did the program dev's set up '07 like that?! I'm so confused Why pw protect a backend if access just stores it
