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. 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.
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.

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
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.
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!
I have a core database set up that requires the user to log onto the database through a Login form, then once the user successfully logs onto the database, the login form is supposed to close and display the main menu.
For some reason, but now the Login screen does not close properly.
Here is my code for the Login botton of the Login screen.
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?
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.
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.
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.
I am currently experimenting with Access and I would like to create a feature where user can check on their number of task based on their updates. I have currently created a form where it can capture user NT login and filter the task based on the user NT login
For example, User A just completed 20 out of 120 of his task. Can this kind of statement appear on the form
Total task : 120
I am trying to pass the Access Code from the Login from to the Main form in a variable called User. The plan is when the user adds a new record in the Main form the User value is added to a control source in Main table field named strUser.
