Might be able to access it with an ADO connection string, or download it if
the location is known and hack around with it there. I'm not sure about how
the mdw file secures it on a linked situation either for instance if you
start a new mdb then link to one of the tables in your secured mdb. When
you say secured, I assume you mean that you have the mdw file. I think that
security/mdw only works when you have the file open in Access, which
wouldn't be the case if one connected to it, queried sysindexes, then
queried the tables... someone who knows more about those may have something
to say here. BTW this is not something an ordinary Joe will do, just giving
you some things to think about or research if you want.
