ACCDE database and reports


L

I have a database that I want to be available to users. I want them to be
able to import queries AND reports to their own workstation. The ACCDE only
allows queries not reports. Is there any way I can change any settings to
allow users to import the reports to their workstations?

Forget the below. What I really want is a database that is read-only that
users can import queries and reports into their own database. Is this
possible? If so, how?
Thanks. I'm working with Office 2007.

No, and in 2007 there is no User-Level-Security with the ACCDB or ACCDE
formats. If you use the MDB format, you can make objects read-only for
existing objects, but they own the objects they import, so they won't be
read only.

I think your best bet in 2007 is to give them their own database (ACCDB),
that they can play in, and lock up the ACCDE, so they can't do anything.

To add to Arvin's reply. Give the users their own ACCDB linked to
your tables in the BE which they can then use to create or import
their own queries and reports.
