"one user account fits all" in a secured database?

P: n/a
I have a secured Access 2000 database. There are approximately 30 user
accounts already set up. Each user logs into their copy of the
front-end by via a desktop shortcut which includes their username and
password.

Would there be a problem if all users accessed the database via the
SAME Access account username/password? I need to set up access to the
database for 15 new employees, and it would save a lot of time to
simply assign them the same Access user account name in their desktop
shortcut. Users would still each have a separate copy of the database
front-end on their partition on the server.

No problem at all.

Naturally, CurrentUser() won't tell you exactly who it is if several people
log in as the same user, but it will work.
