Ok…I didn’t want to post to many details here, 'cause I really wasn’t sure if I was breaking some unwritten rule about asking for work-type advice.
As far as the certification, well when I was an instructor at a computer training session, they made us all take something calles a M.O.U.S. test…you can find more info for it at www.mouse.net
It stands for Microsoft Office User Specialist It’s a fairly good test designed to give someone that works with Access, but is short of time/money needed to get a MCP, a chance to have something that says Yes I know how to create a database
The problem I was having was with assigning security for one database that is accessed via a NT network. After $100 in books, I finally found one that touched on the security, but it fell short of explaining how to really make it work. I mean I can see the user interface damn it, but how do you get it to work with just one database, and not every time you start Access.
(sigh)…I finnaly figured it out…I had to make a shortcut with about 4 different switches to open it from the shared location.
Thanks to all that offered to help…I guess I jumped the gun a little, but I’ve been beating my head against the wall for 4 days on this thing and had gotten frustrated. I mean I can write Macros, do the VBA coding I need, but I couldn’t get the stupid security to work…and it came with a Wizard…But I finaly found the one paragraph in the entire bood that helped…Again, thanks to everyone for offering to help.
If anyone wants more info about the tests, let me know…I’ll be happy to help.
