Log On Box Access 2007

P: 32
Hello All,


I have ran into a foolish problem using access 2007. I have made a database using 2003 with user-level security and for some reason when I start the database now that I have installed 2007 it is not asking me for a username and password, just like it would do if I was not logged into a workgroup. But there is now option to log into a work group in 2007. I have read up on 2007 quite a bit just to find how to solve this, and all I have learned is that getting rid of user-level security was a very foolish idea, when I stumbled upon it I thought it was one of the best futures of Access. But I am trailing off, if any one could please inform me on how to have the database see the old mdw file so I can log on to my workgroup it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
Sean
