    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.

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!
