    I have just started using Access for the first time and have manage to set up
    a table with all the data and also set up a form so that the user can enter
    the data. I am just playing around with the security wizard and want to give
    users access to the form only (as an interface) and not the data table. How
    do I go about this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.....

    First, backup your files, then read the following completely. Once you are
    ready, dive in. You must follow all the steps in order. Do not skip any
    steps.

    The Security Whitepaper is also worth reading to help you understand.

    You most certainly can, and should hide all of the ms-access interface. The
    options to complete hide and keep people out of the ms-access interface can
    easily be done using the tools->start-up options. Using those options allows
    you to complete hide the ms-access interface (tool bars, database window
    etc). Also, using these options means you
    do not have to bother setting up security.

    Try downloading and running the 3rd example at my following web site that
    shows a hidden ms-access interface, and NO CODE is required to do
    this....but just some settings in the start-up.

    Check out:

    http://www.members.shaw.ca/AlbertKallal/msaccess/DownLoad.htm

    After you try the application, you can exit, and then re-load the
    application, but hold down the shift key to by-pass the start-up options. If
    want, you can even disable the shift key by pass. I have a sample mdb file
    that will let you "set" the shift key bypass on any application you want.
    You can get this at:

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!
