Activating User Logons

Activating User Logons

Until you activate the logon procedure for a workgroup, Access automatically logs on all users in the Admin account, giving them complete control over all databases. You can force users to log on to Access by creating a nonblank password in the Admin account.

Activate the Logon Procedure


Start Access as the Admin user (the initial setting for Access).


Click the Tools menu, point to Security, and then click User And Group Accounts.


Click the Change Logon Password tab.


Verify that the current user is Admin.

You do not need to type a password in the Old Password box, because until this moment, no password should have been defined for the Admin account.


Verify the password by retyping it in the Verify box.


Click OK.
