Bypass userlevel Security to make directory changes

P: n/a
HELP!!!!! I am very frustrated and extremely confused.

When creating the DB, it was split and userlevel security was enacted.
Now, I need to make changes so that the VB code will look in the right
location for a file. Essentially, I need to knock one level off of the
directory, ie go from ...e\eg\source_file to ...eg\source_file and
though I am the admin, am locked from making changes.

Any thoughts on how to make this change will be MUCH appreciated; I
have a deadline for this project and have to meet it!

If the code is protected by user level security then you need to logon as
someone with proper permissions and you will be able to change it.

If the code is protected because the file was converted to an MDE then you
CANNOT change the code. You need to change the code in the MDB that was
used to create the MDE and then create a new MDE with that.
