Tech Tip: Passwords - DEFAULT USER
Published On: November 24, 1999

You can now define a “Default User” for using your database. When this option is active, the Password dialog box is not presented to the users that open or connect to the database. Moreover, if you have not associated a password to the Default User, the Password dialog box no longer appears, therefore the database opens directly.

Each user has the access privileges and restrictions defined for the Default User. This option simplifies access to the database while maintaining a complete data control system. To access the password system hold down the shift key when starting the database to display the password dialog box.
