Database Password

Set and Remove a Database Password in Access

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will show you how you can protect your database by adding a password. I will also show you how to remove a password if you decide you no longer want one. 

Nelson from Lincoln, Nebraska (a Platinum Member) asks: I'm an attorney, and I have some sensitive information in my database. Is there any way that I can put a password on it like with Word and Excel to prevent people from opening it?


Members will learn how to split their database and have the frontend connect to the password-protected backend. Then we'll create a user table with usernames and passwords. We'll make a logon form to process the user logon. I'll show you how to use TempVars to store the name of the currently logged on user. 

Silver Members and up get access to an Extended Cut of this video. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault. If you signed up on YouTube you have to contact me so I can set up your account here on my web site. If you're not a member, Join Today!

Hi Richard, I am very curious about utilizing the tempvar that was discussed in the 15th minute, do you go into more detail in another video?

Not really. I've got a lesson coming up on it soon though. I did cover it briefly in Access Advanced 3, but I didn't do it justice. I'll be making a simple TechHelp video about it soon, followed by full coverage in my Access Developer series.

Sorry but this video stops at 15:57 and won't continue.  Is this issue specific to my system?  Seems like it is happening a fair amount....Thanks so much and have a great weekend. Read More...

Is this the extended cut?
I've just tried and it works for me.
Some recent videos that are longer have had encoding issues and had to be reran and reuploaded.

I concur with Alex on this one. This particular video is fine for me. But yes, once in a while longer videos do glitch. That's why I'm trying to keep them under half an hour each. The longer the video, the more of a chance of glitching. And yes, has to be the Ext Cut. The free video is under 13 minutes.
