Set and Remove a Database Password in Access

 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will show you how you can protect your database by adding a password. I will also show you how to remove a password if you decide you no longer want one. 

Nelson from Lincoln, Nebraska (a Platinum Member) asks: I'm an attorney, and I have some sensitive information in my database. Is there any way that I can put a password on it like with Word and Excel to prevent people from opening it?


Members will learn how to split their database and have the frontend connect to the password-protected backend. Then we'll create a user table with usernames and passwords. We'll make a logon form to process the user logon. I'll show you how to use TempVars to store the name of the currently logged on user. 

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.
