    I am trying to open the database I created using Outlook 2000, but Outlook
    2003 says I haven't got "the necessary permissions"!

    What can I do?

    You may want to ask this in an Outlook group. Your question may be better
    answered in a newsgroup appropriate to your problem. This newsgroup is
    dedicated to the Microsoft Access database product. The Microsoft website is
    not all that clear and may have misdirected you.

    Get the necessary permissions.

    I can't tell from your message but the problem may be the related to
    your permissions or lack there of to the directory where the file is
    located. You need to be able to read (open) files as well as create and
    modify files in that directory.

    You can test this out by trying to save a file (A MS Word file will
    work) in the same directory. Then open it make changes and save it then
    delete it. If you can't do this, you lack rights to the directory. (Note,
    this is the reason you can not work with an Access file on a CD)

    It is also possible that the file has user level security applied. This
    will make it very difficult for you to try and access it. You will need
    permissions set up by someone with administration authority for that
    specific file to set you up.

    Thank you very much for your prompt replies, Arvin and Joseph.
    Sorry, that was my mistake. I cannot fathom what made me write Outlook
    instead of Access!
    The thing is: I created a database on an older computer & I've just put it
    onto this new one.
    I seem to have got around the problem for now by deleting it from the hard
    disk and copying it over again from the CD. Thank goodness, because I don't
    want to do a PhD on Microsoft security jargon.
    I would like to know who is this God that decides what I can and cannot
    touch on my own computer though!
    Once again, thank you.

    Usually, a permissions message is caused by an IT department. In your case
    however, I believe it is because of the CD. All files on CD are read-only.
    When copied to a hard drive, they remain that way until changed in the file
    system. Access requires read/write permissions to make a conversion. After
    copying to the hard drive, right-click on the file and change the file
    attributes from Read-only.
