Loop System

P: 11
Hi, I need a code to use in Access. The code is called Loop system, or at least is that what I've been told. This code protects the database by closing it if the password to database files is typed few times incorrectly.

eg. I type wrong password and it says that the password is wrong, and when I type it two times more, it shuts down the database.

Please, help me with my problem, because I have to do that to protect my database!

Just a simple count of the number of times the logon is performed will enable you to close the database after three times. The "villan" however would only have to start the .mdb again to continue...
No real protection, perhaps better to check this link:

about security.

Keep in mind that every security can be passed one way or another. Trust and Service are the best protection.
