Database Split Question

    I've done this before but now I'm having a problem splitting another
    database. I currently have a secured db that I'm trying to split. When I
    split the database into a FE/BE I lose all my permissions for my tables. When
    I open the BE the permissions are there but when I open the FE the
    permissions are gone. I have to reset all my permissions to my tables now.
    Can anyone shed some light as to why this is happening?

    It sounds like you are not joining the workgroup when you open the FE.
    Take a look at the properties of the icon you are using to open the BE and
    copy the additional information to the other properties and see if that
    helps.

    I suggest you start by reading

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

    I am joining the workgroup properly. All my permissions on the FE for the
    queries, reports, etc are still intact. The only thing I lose is my
    permissions for the tables on the FE.

    Sorry, but I am out of ideas. Maybe someone else has had this problem.

    From your description, I surmise that you split the database manually?

    When you create the links to the tables from the frontend, the links will
    acquire the permissions that you have for the <new tables/queries>.

    I generally give full permissions to the table links in the FE. Users will
    still be restricted by their permissions on the tables in the BE.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
