Access 2003 Workgroup

Access 2003 Workgroup

Post by QnJlbnRfRm » Thu, 11 Aug 2005 01:06:09


Previously I was able to use the wrkgrp.exe program in access 97 to set all
users of access default workgroup file on a nt2000 terminal server. Now with
access 2003 if i use the workgroup administrator within a database it only
sets that particular user to use the workgroup, not all users of the terminal
server.

How do i set all users who open the database on a terminal server to use the
same workgroup file.

I read about creating a shortcut and using the command line switch, but what
happens if the user just double clicks on the .mdb file from windows explorer?

Thanks in advance,

Brent

If they can do that and successfully get in, then you didn't secure it
properly. They shouldn't be able to even open the mdb unless using the
correct mdw.

I suspect he is saying that in a TS environment, the workgroup admin
function used to affect the default workgroup for /all/ windows users,
but now, it only affects the windows user who was logged on when the
change was made.

Perhaps, but creating a shortcut is the way to go anyway.
