Access 2k database keeps changing security permissions

P: n/a
I have a an Access 2000 database that I have given read & write permissions
to the IUSR & IWAM users on my machine (for a web application), but every
time I open the database directly, it loses the permissions for those
users.

Anyone know how this happens?

Thanks.

Do you have "Compact on Close" set? Compacting the database will
re-create the file, probably without the permissions.

Yep, see http://trigeminal.com/usenet/usenet028.asp for a bit on the compact
issue.
