No. At least not a nice easy built-in way. You could write code to create
accounts in your workgroup file which match those in the active directory,
but what about passwords? Are you looking for something like you have with
SQL Server where you can use Windows authentication to give you access to a
database without having to explicitly login to the database? I could make
some suggestions but since an Access database cannot be secured in any
meaningful way, it would be silly to start dreaming up how you could link
the two forms of login.
