    Hi there,

    I've just downloaded and installed new access 2007. I wanted to play
    with one of my database wich is restricted by a workgroup but i can't
    open it because i can't join the workgroup file (i can't find it in the
    menus like in my access 2003).
    I've tried to pass the /wrkgrp option in the options menu -> command
    line argument in advanced section but it doesn't work)

    Please help me :) i'm going nuts !

    ok i've found a workaround.
    I've created a link to access 2007 then added the /Wrkgrp switch with my
    filename to the command line so that access use it a its workgroup, i
    then have been able to open my workgroup protected database without
    problems :)

    Anyway, if someone knows how to join a workgroup from within access i
    still want to know how...

    As I understand it, there is currently no menu command to do this. You can
    do it programmatically like so ...

    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdWorkgroupAdministrator

    JET ULS (User-Level-Security) is being deprecated in Access 2007. It is
    supported for backwards-compatibility if you use Access 2000 or Access
    2002/2003 file format, but is no longer supported if you use the new Access
    2007 file format.
