Access Split Database Seminar
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

In this seminar, you will learn how to set up a database using Microsoft Access with multiple back-end (table) files: one that every database user can access, and another for sensitive information, such as financial data, that only a small, select group of users can access. You will then learn how to use Windows file and folder sharing to secure the sensitive back-end database file so that only the users you select can read that data. This seminar will cover:

1. Set up multiple customer tables, one for normal data, one for sensitive data
2. Build two customer forms; the sensitive form requiring a password to open
3. Split your database into 3 files: front end and two back-end files for tables
4. Create shared folders on your server or Windows PC
5. Use Windows-level file & folder security to prevent access to the sensitive data
6. Move the back-end files to the server and relink with the Linked Table Manager
7. Encrypt your front-end database and create an ACCDE file

Access Split Database Seminar Comment from Joya @ 2/10/2018
I am also interested in this.[See below]
Currently I split a database and about 5 employees are using the one FE.accde file. We haven't had any issues, but let me know if you are aware of any. Did you ever make this seminar? That might work better for me. THANKS!

The mini seminar you mentioned here:[However, if you have the Front End distributed to lots of different workstations, then it's really up to you to distribute those changes. You can make it as simple as creating shortcuts to their database folders and they copying and pasting the new FE file yourself. Or you can email them a link and say "here, download this." I even went so far with one client to program an automated solution that would:

1. Check for a new version (number stored in a table)
2. If it was new, quit the database and launch a BATch file
3. Batch file copies new ACCDB file from server to local workstation
4. Batch file then re-launches database

It's completely up to you.


P.S. If enough people want to see how I created that automated solution, let me know. If I get a handful of people interested, I'll make a mini seminar out of it.]
