Password protection on split database


T

Tony Williams

I have a database which is split into front end and back end. The front end
is password protected but the backend isn't Is it possible to protect both
with the same password? I've tried protecting the backend with a password
but when I open the front end it can't "see" the backend.
Any ideas?
Thanks
Tony

Put a password on the backend, then, after opening the front-end, use the
Linked Table Manager to update the links (just like you would if you had
moved the backend). You should be prompted for the 'missing' password during
this process.

You should only need to do this once, as the password (once supplied) will
be remembered from session to session.

George tried your solution but when I use the Linked Table Manager to update
the links I get a message that says Not a valid password but no option to
input one?
Any suggestions?

You might have to delete the links and re-create them from scratch.
