Hi all, I have an Access 97 database that restrics the users through a user level workgroup file. It works well and good for this particular application. The problem occurs when I try to open other databases from Access97 . I am being asked for the Name and Password ( from the workgroup I created) . It looks like , once I set up a workgroup file, Access will always refer its security based on the the currently joined workgroup. I want to apply this workgroup security only to the application I am currently developing, not to all the Access 97 databases. Does anyone know any solution .
