You can't. Write permissions are required to modify the data in the database and that includes delete permission. There's no permission that is only for delete.

I'm not a network guru but I know you can locate the backend in a folder on the server which is hidden to general uses. The front-end explicitly links to this file via the known folder-name but the users cannot see it to delete it or steal data by copying to pen-drive.

If they can get into what was the 'Database Window' they can stil wreck havoc.

Which reminds me that I must stop them pressing F11 in Access 2010!

Within any Windows Domain the file permissions are NTFS compatible, and that includes a permission to delete. If users don't have this permission set then they will be unable to delete the file. Be very careful not to let anyone set the Deny Permission for Delete as that could cause your systems and/or administrators to be unable to delete it too.

PS. This is a Windows question and not related to Access or VBA.

Hi all, I'm having a few problems with a shared access 97 db.

Hi newsgroup! Can anyone tell me where I should put a simple Access database file in order to be accessible for every computer in the network (same workgroup)? There does not need to be any protection (I heard people say that I should buy a dedicated server or have special rights for each and every user, but I can keep it simple since there will be no intruders - no internet connection available -). I don't think that the "Programs"...

Hello! This is quite important. We have an Access file shared in a network. Every user has its front-end copy that is linked to a back-end copy. This database has an autonumber field to count the records. Surprisingly, one day we found out that the autonumber count had elapsed 500 records; that is, the last entered record was assigned number 650 and the new one was assigned number 1100 by the autonumber field. I didn't find any...

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,...
