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.

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 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?
I have a database on a network drive. IS there a way to protect the database from being deleted?
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.
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
I'm trying to figure out how to open a Word doc from Access, populate certain fields, then protect the document from editing (just allowing form entry).
All of this is relatively simple, opening the document and populating the fields. The problem comes that you cannot populate the fields in a protected document, therefore, the document must be unprotected.
Then, because the control has passed to Word, I cannot figure out how to protect the form from my Access VBA code.
The situation may arise when you quickly need to secure and distribute a Microsoft Access database that also contains Microsoft Access VBA code. You will protect the database from editing by restricting the database users access to the design views, however you will need to allow the users to process their data as normal.
It may be that you haven't got the time to fully create Microsoft Access User Accounts or to set Microsoft Access Security Permissions. By knowing what can and cannot be done by using the Microsoft Access MDE file format, will allow you to make a decision and to quickly release a secure database to the users.
