Workgroup Information File Problems

Workgroup Information File Problems

Post by Leo Rinci » Wed, 09 Jul 2003 00:04:26

Hi all,

I posted this in ".security" as well but it might very well have something
to do with replication ...
Thanks for you help,

I've got a properly secured 97 DB as a back-end replica and am constantly
forced to re-enter permissions for my users. Workgroup information file
behaves as if it doesn't save new settings at all. Any suggestion
I assign permissions on DB objects in original, non-replicate
archives, prior to replicating - Access complains otherwise:). Then I
replicate and encounter various "permission" errors when attempting to open
the (replicated) DB afterwards - not upon synchronizing.
Re. your comment then, it is not strange when, after wrkgadm.exe edits the
workgroup file, its Date Modified property doesn't change?!

What am I to do about it, anyway? I'm guessing that this could not be a bug
in user-level security when replicating ... someone must use both secure DBs
and replication, it shouldn't be that *** , right?

I'm not quite sure, (whether I get these errors before replicating) to be
honest, because I was a bit behind on my FE design so I've put these issues
to rest for a while.
One unusual thing I'm doing is that I'm switching between Access 97 and 2000
constantly since I'm developing front-ends in two different "flavors" (I
stopped recently since I was devastated to learn that one cannot use Access
2000 front-end on replicated Access 97 backends - and that by Microsoft's
design! - still don't know how to solve that one ...) and using the same
Access 97 generated *.mdw file.

1. Workgroup file information file error: OleDB to Access file

2. Restricting a workgroup information file to only one project?

I have designed a database which a I would like to distribute to other persons,
who not are part of my network, and I want to prevent them from making any
changes in the design. If I'm creating a new workgroup
information file and givs certain permissions for users, this file seems to be
the current workgroup information file for all the Access databases om my
computer, even those who I don't want to secure. Can I in some way restrict a
certain workgroup information file to only refer to one specific databasefile,
and leave the rest to the original default workgroup information file? And what
happens when I distribute my application to other computers? I guess the new
workgroup information file has to follow, but what impact will it bring to the
other computer? Or should this task be done in quite another way?
