Read only linked tables

P: n/a
Is there anyway to link tables between 2 Access databases with one of
the databases being read only? On the other hand, would it be best
just to create a user account that is read only?

To make the database read-only, right click on the file and go to Properties
and check the 'Read Only' option. Then it's read-only for everyone.

To make it read-only for some users, you'll need to implement Access
security, or code your own (which will be more difficult).

How much do you weigh?
Trina, Before you consider this and the 'way, 'way down the page vulgar "tag
line" as typical of posters in this newsgroup, consider that it was posted
by the resident troll and character assassin from behind an anonymizer, to
wit, the following from the headers of the referenced message:
Sender: Fritz Wuehler <fr***@rodent.frell.eu.org>
Comments: This message did not originate from the
Sender address above. It was remailed automatically
by anonymizing remailer software. Please report
problems or inappropriate use to the remailer admini-
strator at <ab***@remailer.frell.eu.org>.

X-No-Archive: Yes


And, chances are near 100% that the author is named neither "Fritz Wuehler"
nor "Mark Reed".
