    Hello,

    I developed into toto_app.mdb an application with forms, and reports ,
    everything working with attached tables where is in a another *.mdb,
    toto.mdb, which contains only tables with the data.

    Everything works well, now my customer requires to define a password on
    toto.mdb, because this file is on the network and he will that nobody
    can open it and read it. So I defin the password on toto.mdb, by the
    menu to >tools>Set a password.

    Now when I launch toto_app.mdb, I have this message : "passwords
    invalid", but no possibility to enter a password!!!

    An idea? or another method to securise my data into toto.mdb?

    Thank you

    I suggest you start by reading
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;[LN];207793

    Access security is a great feature, but it is, by nature a complex product
    with a very steep learning curve. Properly used it offers very safe
    versatile protection and control. However a simple mistake can easily lock
    you out of your database, which might require the paid services of a
    professional to help you get back in.

    Practice on some copies to make sure you know what you are doing.

    Password security is rather weak and inflexible in Access.

    With the way linked tables work you are going to have to reestablish the
    links to the back end. It will then prompt you for the password to the
    toto.mdb database. Access will then retain the password in the toto_app.mdb
    for future users.
