    I have set up a database on a server and distributed instructions on how to
    joing the WIF that has the appropriate securities for the database. The
    problem (or should I say the main problem) is that whenever one of the other
    users sign on to another database it uses that WIF. I have tried making a
    shortcut on the desktop but that doesn't seem to help. Maybe I am not making
    the steps in the correct order. I would appreciate any help.

    You should give them a custom shortcut INSTEAD OF having them join your
    Workgroup file, not in addition to doing that. As long as a user's default
    workgroup file has a password on the Admin user they will be prompted to
    login irrespective of the the file(s) they might be using. The only way to
    avoid that is to have a default workgroup that does not have that
    requirement. Then your special shortcut can specify a different workgroup
    file only when they are opening your file.

    The shortcut needs to take the form of
    "path to msaccess.exe" "path to mdb" /wrkgrp "path to secure mdw"

    Leave them joined by default to the standard system.mdw and use the desktop
    shortcut to launch the secure mdb.
