Simple Security for Microsoft Access Databases. Create ACCDE File.
In this video, I will show you how to protect your Access databases with security that's good enough for most trusted work environments. You will learn how to hide sensitive objects (tables, forms, etc.), hide the Navigation Pane, disable the full Ribbon, and encrypt your database into an Execute-Only version (ACCDE).
Ruben from Toronto, Canada (a Platinum member) asks: I trust my employees. I have a small 5-person, family-run business. I'm not worried about someone intentionally sabotaging my database. However, I'd like to secure it just enough to keep people from seeing things they shouldn't (like financial data or sensitive customer info). Plus I wouldn’t want someone accidentally "breaking" something. Any tips you can give? I know you have a whole Security Seminar, but I don't need Fort Knox here.
I'll show you how to password protect your sensitive forms using an InputBox in your buttons to prompt the user for a password. I'll also show you how to minimize the Ribbon and the Navigation Pane, and also maximize Access (the entire application window).
