where is the security file located in 2007?



I have been working on and off for months on trying to get 2007 to recognize
that I am the owner and administrator of the database, with no luck. The
database worked just fine in 2003, then IT upgraded to 2007 with no warning.
I backed up all of the mdw files, as well as the database, and have tried
using them all, to no avail. I know which mdw file is the correct one, and
when I open it in mysysaccount, I can see that all of the users and creator
are in there. I've tried the runcommand to use the workgroup administrator
phrase in vba, but I get an error message. I have followed all (and I mean
all!) of the many pages of Microsoft support messages and messages from this
board to convert, allow, everything under the sun with no results. Yesterday
I changed the trusted locations and still, no prize.
I tried to create a new database and export the reports, queries, etc. that
I have set up, but again, no permissions to do so.
I work for the government, so I can't buy hacking software. Our security
wouldn't allow it. FYI - our IT gave me full security rights to Access, so
that isn't blocking anything.
Does anyone have any suggestions??

I answered your other question about the shortcut. That should fix the
