    Hi,

    I have develop a database now in user by 3 departments. This database work
    fine except it does not have any security level setting. The management
    asked me to add this feature for example setting up 3 groups (users,
    department head and Head of orgnazation). Users can do certain thing where
    as Department Head can do certain thing that Users cannot do...

    I cannot find a way to setup this security level. Could somebody give some
    ideas. Does this related to Access Security (Log on) or it is a separate
    setup?

    I suggest you start by reading
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;[LN];207793

    Access security is a great feature, but it is, by nature a complex product
    with a very steep learning curve. Properly used it offers very safe
    versatile protection and control. However a simple mistake can easily lock
    you out of your database, which might require the paid services of a
    professional to help you get back in.

    Practice on some copies to make sure you know what you are doing.

    You will want to use Access User-level security. A security faq is available
    at:

    http://support.microsoft.com/support/access/content/secfaq.asp

    Read it carefully several times. Proper security is complex and you could
    easily lock yourself out. When first setting everything up, make sure that
    you have a backup for everything.

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!
