Avoid users being able to see db structure in .ACCDB of 2007

How do you stop a user from double-clicking on .ACCDB file of 2007 and
being able to see the tables' and queries structure ?

If the solution is the database password, then database cannot open
from a shortcut as

"path to access 2007" "path to db 2007"

and user not able to open the database without needing to know the
password

Till 2003 this could be avoided wtih system.mdw and defining a
password for Admin user.

thanks a lot in advance.

Using Access 2007, you can still create a shortcut to an MDB that includes
the /wrkgrp switch and MDW.

Just use include the full path to msaccess.exe, as in previous versions.
Example of Target for shortcut:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12 \msaccess.exe"
"C:\MyFolder\My File.mdb" /wrkgrp "C:\MyFolder\Sy stem.MDW"

I have another question. With Access 2007, as I understand it, you only need to use the .accdb if you are using features such as memo notes history, or the multiple selections for a given key id. Prior to deploying my program in Access 2007, I need to make sure I'm using the correct formats. I have a handful of misc. databases, one for workspaces / temp. tables, local config options and a to-do list. Should I use the .mdb format for...

Hi, I've just completed work on an access 2007 database which will be run from a network server by many inexperienced users at the same time. Every time the database is opened, the "content in this database has been disabled" warning appears at the top and my users would not think to click options and enable the content. I have tried digitally signing to avoid the problem but I can only seem to do it by packaging the database - forcing...
