preventing users to import data from another mdb file

P: n/a
Hi All
i'm building a database in access and i want to restrict permissions.
from the access i can just limit the posiblity to unhide an hidden
table and in this way i can preventing the users from looking in un-
relevant data
my problem is how can i prevent the posiblity to import the data from
another mdb file
becaouse it is quite simple and visible to extract the information
from another mdb file
any ideas?

one way might be to build a custom menubar and don't include the
'import' function
don't allow database window view, force the app to open to a mainmenu
form

you can do it inside of your mdb but what is someone would like to
import the information from another mdb?
one way i found but still in a way problematic is to unhide the table
but when someone will select view hidden objects it the hidden tables
will appear
