    I am thinking about creating some data access pages and need to know if you
    can limit access to pages for certain users. I have some forms that need to
    be accessed by everyone in the company and other ones that only specific
    people can access. If anyone can offer advise on this it would be great

    Cheers

    I would not use DAPs for a database where people cannot see certain "pages".
    The code that is in a DAP is fully exposable to the user and cannot be
    protected -- Because you would need to use some type of "internal"
    programming in the page in order to "test" if a user is allowed to go to a
    specific page, the programming that you would use for that test can be seen
    by anyone who can see the source code of the page that runs that programming
    script.

    You probably need to look at alternative ideas -- ASP web pages, or perhaps
    ADP files (not MDB files).

    I know nothing about ASP or ADP. Some basic information would be great.

    Would I be better off using a different program all together? If so, what
    program would you suggest?

    Let's start with a description of the environment in which you want the
    database to operate. Will all users have access to an internal network
    server, or will the users need to go through the internet?
