I've read this MS info which should cover my problem. There are quite clear steps:
- Open the .mdb or .mde file that you want to help protect.
- On the Database Tools tab, in the Administer group, click the arrow below Users and Permissions, and then click User-Level Security Wizard.
The problem: I don't see "Users and Permissions" option in the "Administer" group. So I can't proceed. (I use Access 2013, which I don't think that's a problem here.)
In the site, it also says that "you must also use the
/WRKGP command-line switch to point to your workgroup information file when you start Access".
And I did exactly that (which should be correct according to this):
"msaccess.exe" "C:\Temp\testDB.mdb" /wrkgrp "C:\Users\ZygD\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Access\System1.mdw"
The file loads, I get no error. Any thoughts? Anything I'm missing?
So, the problem is that I cannot proceed in creating user-level-security. This is a step towards creating separate user accounts for the Access DB file. Initially there is only one Admin account, and it's quite a challenge to create other accounts in new versions of Access...
