Security when spliiting access database between fron end nad backend

P: n/a
I have an access 2000 database which has several levels of security
defined, i.e., certain users can only see certain forms, run certain
reports.
I am splitting this database in front end and back end. I want to
move back end to Oracle. I don't now where security is stored
in Access.

Will access users see only he forms/reports hey have been authorized
after the move to Oracle. I can limit database access
to Oracle by creating different Oracle users, but my question
is what happens to front end security after the split.
Thanks,

Prem

It stays w/ the front-end. Be sure to retain the .mdw file you
created/used when you created the user-security settings.
