Error-You Do Not Have The Necessary Permission..

Jul 12, 2006


I get this error when opening my MS Access database - You do not have the necessary permissions to use the ...[flie name and path]... object. Have your system administrator or the person who created this object establish the necessary permissions for you.

The database works fine on another computer, but every time I transfer it to mine (I am on a network), I get the above error. I have recreated the User-level security workgroup file, no joy.

Can you help?

Modules & VBA :: Backup Code Getting Permission Denied Error

Aug 22, 2014

I got these three code routines for backing up an Access database file from two different forums. I installed them as is, on a test database, creating command buttons for each. The test database is not password protected. I intend (if I can get one of these working) to install it on simple, single file, password protected databases.The first two came from Access World Forums at: URL....


Function BACKUPS()
On Error GoTo Err_BACKUPS
Dim fso As Object
Dim sSourcePath As String
Dim sSourceFile As String
Dim sBackupPath As String
Dim sBackupFile As String


I got a compile error "Invalid use of property." on the button sub. Then there was a simple On Click sub:


Private Sub Backup_Click()
Dim fs
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
fs.CopyFile CurrentProject.FullName, "C:", True
Set fs = Nothing
MsgBox "Database has been backed up successfully"
End Sub
Private Sub Command32_Click()
End Sub

On this one I got a "Permission denied." error on the CopyFile method. As I said before, my database is not password protected.I found this third bit of code on another forum: URL...

Public Function db_Backup()
On Error GoTo db_Backup_Err

Dim sourceFile As String, destinationFile As String
Dim aFSO As Variant
Dim path As String, name As String


On this one I got another "Permission denied." error on the CopyFile method. Again, my database is not password protected. This code had appeared to me to be the most promising of the three.

General :: No Permission To Open Database Object Error

Jan 20, 2015

I have a 2003 .mdb file and the associated Workgroup Information File which normally resides on a network in a folder V:V-Base-DatabaseDATA. I have the Workgroup Information File.

The database is unsupported and we need to migrate the data to a new web based database.

When I try to open the database with the shift key down I get the following message :

You do not have the necessary permission to use the V:V-Base-DatabaseDATAV-Basebe.mdb object.

What is the best way to access the data and do I need to do this on the server instead of a local drive off site?

" Error - "The Current User Account Doesn't Have Permission To ......"

Jul 31, 2006

I have a very important access database running on a Windows 98SE laptop with Access 97 on the laptop. I wish to have that database backep up and opened on an XP machine running Access 2003. The problem is that the laptop is a corporate laptop with lots of security features and the database can only be opened by that laptop. The laptop only has permissions to read the file, so cannot remove the protection. I have tried to copy the system.mdw file across to the xp machine (in the correct directory), but I still get the below error.

The current user account doesn't have permission to convert or enable this database.

To convert or enable a database, ensure the following:
* You must join the workgroup that defines the user accounts used to access the database.
* Your user account must have Open/Run and Open Exclusive permissions for the database object.
* Your user account must have Modify Design or Administer permissions for all the tables in the database, or it must be the owner of all tables in the database.
* Your user account must have Read Design permission for all objects in the database.
* Request that other users close the database.

I have tried to create a new database on the xp machine and import all the data into a new database, but again I get an error (but only when importing certain forms and macros) below:

"You don't have permission to import, export or link to 'item name'"

I have also tried to create a blank database and import data from the database into it on the laptop, with the same error message above.

Does anybody have any ideas about this one? For example is there a piece of software to remove the protection (not a password remover)? - help appreciated.

User Permission Problem

Jul 17, 2007


I was in the process of setting up a new user on our database, when I think I inadvertantly changed my own permissions. As the owner & creator of the database I am now unable to open it up - am getting th following messag:

"You do not have the necessary permissions to use the 'NDatabasesGAB Contacts.mdb' object. Have your system administrator or the person who creatd this objct establish the appropriat permissions for you."

After rading another thread on this subject I hav amendd the security options for the database, by right-clicking & selecting properties and the Security tab, then adding myself as the owner - but this has not resolved the problem.

Does anyone have any other suggestions to help me get back into my database?

Access97 Permission Problem

Dec 19, 2007

I bought a database about 10 years ago and still uses it. Since then we changed our address and need to update all the forms as the address is hard coded into the forms. When I tried to modify any thing it tells me I don't have the Permission. I tried to contact the programmer, but he's been out of business years ago and was unable to contact him.

How do I reset the permission on MDB? I tried Tools->Security->User/GroupPremissions and it only shows Admin user with "Read Design" checked on all object names. And if I check on any other permission it says I need administer permission.

I tried "Users' passwords viewer v3.2" and it shows admin user with garbled up password. Also tried MDWRecovery, but it says there's no user or password.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Access 200 Permission Lockup

Feb 20, 2008

Either when copying from one db to another on my machine or running a db produced on that machine on a network, I get the message "the database has been placed in a state by user (my machine is called "Rat") that prevents it from being opened or locked". =Error 3734.
The security data says I am "Admin" and permission is set for Admin and Users. It has been doing this intermittently for a while and now does it all the time.
Follow up data
All databases are created, revised and run on home machine (Rat) and run on the office network.

The offending DB will permit internal design, editing , copying and will accept pasting IN of tables etc. from other DBs. But it will not allow copying OUT of files such as a table to other DBs even on the machine that created them. However it will allow copying and pasting of objects such as forms in visual form or individual query cells to other DBs.

Iíve carefully compared the Tools/Security/User & Group Permissions with a good running version of the DB and can see no difference.
Permission settings on good and bad DBs are:-
Permissions: Admin Object: Current DB
Checked: Open/Run, Open Exclusive, Administer.
Iíve also checked each individual filesí Permissions. The .ldb file, viewed with Word with the offending DB running on my office machine (Weasil), reads:-
WEASIL_ Admin_

The creating machine ďRatĒ uses the Account ďRichardĒ: but I have had few similar problems before. While revising the DB, I made 30 copies of at each stage along the way but saved carefully each design change and certainly did not deboot the computer without doing so.

Iíve tried the above procedure on my computer (Weasil) at the office, but got the same result. So itís not the computers or MS Access 2000 program. Somewhere along the line, perhaps, the DB got corrupted. It Repaired and Compacted OK but still has the problem.

Access 2003 Security Permission Problem

Oct 19, 2006

I have a database, which contains linked tables to another database. The information held in the tables are mostly open for every permitted user but some of the table informations are restricted to a few user only. To manage all of this different permissions I created a workgroup, changed all the necessary things to become an administrator and run the security wizard to secure my database. Finally I want to give every single group the access it belongs to. And there is my problem.
I have a form which has a VBA code underlying which selects data from a table and two queries and where the user can set individual criterias. For me as an admin user this form works perfect. When I log on as a user I can't find out how to set the permissions not to receive the error message: "You do not have the necessary permission to use the 'MSys Table' object...." The user should not be an admin user and I already set the modify, update, delete, read, read design permission to the group. Nothing helps.
Please if anybody has an idea what I can try I really would appreaciate this help!
Thanks very much :)

Limit User's Security Permission With Code

Sep 15, 2005

My db is secured using Access security but now find myself needing to code a little security work around if possible.

I have a form that has a subform. On the subform is a field named "Comments". The subform security only lets a particular group write to the fields it contains (including "Comments"). I have a new user that I need to allow to write to "Comments" but not to any of the other fields on the subform. I could make another subform with "Comments" only field and redo my security so that the original group can write to both subforms and new user can only write to "Comments" subform but I think it might be easier to code in that the new user is only allowed to write to field "Comments" in the existing subform. Every user logs into the db so I can get the user ID.

Is it possible to do this?

How To Get Full Permission:Add, Delete, Update, Edit In The SQL Server Database

Jul 26, 2007

I wrote the following statements to update a SQL server database:

Dim MyDb As Database
Dim MyRs As Recordset

Set MyDb = DBEngine.Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase("AMD", dbDriverPrompt, False, "ODBC;DATABASE=AMD;DSN=Remote")

Set MyRs = MyDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT AllAttendanceEvents.* FROM AllAttendanceEvents ORDER BY AllAttendanceEvents.EntryTime DESC")


While Not MyRs.EOF
MyVal = MyRs!EntryTime
Debug.Print MyVal
MyRs!Ix = 50099

When it execute the red line statement, it generates the error:Cannot update. Database or object is read-only.

This error is generated isnpite that I already checked the boxes: SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE in the Permissions page of the tables?

Please advise.
