Securing Access DB on Windows XP

MAB
My client wants the Access 2000 database to be accessible only thru the vb
application that I wrote. No user should be able to copy, delete, move, open
it from any client machine, not even from the server in case he is away. So
whats the best way to protect that file while letting the VB app to connect
to it from client machines??

thx

You need to assign a username and password to the database file, then pass
that information from the VB app to the database in the database connection
string.
