security with one user name

I'm working on a project that uses a hosted SQL 2000 db.
The hosting provider only only has given me on administrative user account.
Assuming that I only ever have that admin account to link to the db. what
would be the best way to secure specific tables from the users.

I'd like to stay away from ODBC because anybody with the right tool could
open the db.

Currently I'm using an access 2003 project as the front end.
It apears that savy users can get to the database window and get access to
the tables therin.
Is there a way to prevent users from getting to the table information using
a project.
Is the a better way to link to the db that would alow me to specify specific
tables or views then to use the connection wizard.

Thanks Jim

Hosted on a web server? If so, you can create .asp or ASP.NET pages
with which the user interacts, that do all the access and update --
that's normally the only situation in which I think it would be
appropriate to have just one userid (and even then, you should have at
least one user userid to go along with the admin id). Well, unless you
are like two colleagues of mine, half a continent apart, working in
different industries, who each have applications with one workstation
using a server database.

I can think of no way to have secure access to that server data with
only one userid, and that an admin id. You'd best have a talk with
your host provider.

I am looking at using a table with user names, passwords and user rights, which I would administer. I have read a lot about the shortfalls of this and the lack of security but the customer does not wish to use Access security and what they are more focused on is a solution for when a user performs a critical action the system can verify that it is actually that user, e.g. Checks User Name and Password in a table in place of just selecting...

Background: When I create a ASP.NET control (User or custom), it often requires security to be set for certain functionality with the control.

Problem Up until now, I have been implementing security directly inside the control. I will test directly against the security model to see if...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents.
