Link to password protected database (not DB password nor User-Level Security Wizard)

Hello,

I need to link some tables (which are in DB1) to another database (DB2).

But DB1 is password protected.

Please let me say this clearly:

1. DB1 does NOT have a database security password set, as in (Tools - Security - Set Database Password)

2. DB1 does NOT have a password and username set as in (Tools - Security - User-Level security Wizard)

Instead they have a kind of internal security. When I open DB1 a form pops up which asks me for username and password.

So when I open DB2 and try to link a table from DB1 a error message shows up.

Some ideas are pass-through query, ODBC and/or VBA.

I'm completely illiterate in pt queries, ODBC and I'm a neophite in VBA.

Any help will be greatly appreciated,

Thanks in advance and regards,

PP

Is there a chance that the database is asking for a network user/pass? I've seen examples of forms that will verify a user/pass against those stored in the network's security.

Hello ryanvb83

Thanks for your response,

Nope, this one asks for your username and password, but they are stored internally in that DB, but, again, they are not in a User-Level Security Scheme, username and passwords are stored in a table inside that same DB.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
