    Hi

    I'm new in securing db. Appreciate if u could answer my questions below

    1) I've created db and succesfully secured the db. When i copy/transfer
    the db to other pc, the db can be open without any ID/Password. What went
    wrong?

    2) I intend to split the db. How do i make sure that my workgroup will
    work if i were to distribute the FE to any user in my network ?

    Thanks

    Zyus

    You missed a step. When properly secured the file cannot be opened unless your
    secure workgroup file is used. You likley left "Admin" as the owner of the
    database.

    See 1) If you secure it properly then you will need to place the workgroup file
    on the network and give each user a custom shortcut that opens the file while
    specifying your workgroup file.
