" 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?

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?

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 :: User Account Form - Encrypted Password

Apr 7, 2015

I am using an RC4 vba function to encrypt the password when a user account is setup in the front end of my split database. The password is stored in the backend encrypted. It is encrypted in the before update event of the form by calling a function against the bound password field. My problem is that when I want to maintain user accounts using this form, I want to be able to see the password as plain text.

I can decrypt it and display it in the form in plain text but cannot update it. This is because to display the password in plain text requires me to use a query as the record source for the form and this query requires an expression to call the decrypt function against the password field. The form will not allow any changes against a field that uses an expression as the control source.

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?

I am extremely new to Access. I have my database up and running ok(ish) and would like to know if in my data entry form, I can have the "Date Entered in Database" box display the current date that does not change from day to day.

Form Doesn't Filter On Load If User Has Restricted Access

Jul 27, 2012

I have a report that has a link to open a a form "ProjectDetailsActive" to a specific record ID from the report. It works.

I have 3 subsets of users who have restricted access to the form "Project Details Active". By that I mean that when they open this form, it hides and rearranges some tabs, and disables certain controls. If a user from one of these 3 subsets tries to open the link to a specific record in the form, it does not work. The form opens to the first record available instead of the selected record. This is only a problem for these 3 user groups. For users who do not fall into these 3 groups, the filter works.

This is the only code in the form that does the restriction, but I don't know where the process is going wrong.

Private Sub Form_Current()
CancelRsn.Enabled = False
'detect number of line items for current project
Me.lblOrderCount.Caption = GetNumRecords & " line items for this project."

General :: Access Multi User Database - Error On Only One User

Apr 24, 2013

I have a multi user database in Access 2000 that is on a server. The individual users have shortcuts pointing towards the server instance. One user and one user only when opening the shortcut gets the error "you do not have exclusive rights to the database" .

All other users can enter the database with no error box. I have checked the advanced setting under options and they are correct. Ironically if you go to start and open access then navigate to the database shortcut. It opens with no error.

Error Handling When LostFocus Doesn't Work

Jun 7, 2006

Hi, hope somebody can help with this problem.

I have a med-large db shared on network. Am under some pressure to split front/back so more people can do data entry, but want the forms to be semi-finished before putting them on everybody's c:drive.

The problem is error handling for required fields. Some fields are required in the underlying tables because if users don't fill them in, reports are useless. But Access error msg for required fields are too strange, users just close down, maybe wrecking the thing. Don't want to eliminate Close button yet in case they get stuck in Access hell.

I got one ( !! ) field locked in well using LostFocus event, but what do you do if users just mouse into fields at random? LostFocus won't work if it never had focus, right?

(Would much prefer to just use unbound form and give choice of "Field is required" and "OK" or "Cancel this record" but realize that's asking for a lot of help here.)

Any assistance you can offer would be MUCH appreciated!! Vba course isn't until July.

Current User Default When Adding A Record

Feb 22, 2005

If I have a field in a table called "AddedBy", is there a way for this to default to the CurrentUser that's logged in to the database when a record is added to the table? I know you can use "Application.CurrentUser" both in the VB code and within SQL queries, but it doesn't seem to work if I put it in the "Default Value" box with the table editor. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Thanks!

Is The Current User A Member Of The Admin Group?

Aug 10, 2007

I am setting up a call log for an application. Once a message has been entered, I need to restrict access to the person who created it AND to managers (who have admin privelages to the database). Since the user who created a message needs to be able to go back in and edit it if necessary, I can NOT simply restrict access to the edit form to admins.

The command that opens this form looks like this so far:Code:If ((Me.[Transaction] = "Status Call") And _ (Me.[TransactionBy] = CurrentUser())) THEN DoCmd.OpenForm "frmEditMessage" ...Else MsgBox("Blah blah blah, etc etc.")End IfI need to add something to the initial If statement like this:Code:Or (CurrentUser.isMemberOfGroup("Admins"))but I don't know the correct Access syntax for it.

Any help anyone can give me would be appreciated!
