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 :)

Modules & VBA :: Check If Column D Value Is Present In Access Table Ref Field

Oct 14, 2014

I am designing a project in which there is a form and on that form there is a textbox and Browse button. With browse button you can select a file from the dialog box and that file path will appear in the textbox. This part has been done as below:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
End Sub
Sub ChooseFile()

Dim fd As FileDialog
Set fd = Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)

[Code] ....

Now the next Part i.e Part2 in which we have to see the references present in Column D of the "Summary" worksheet of the workbook whose path is present in textbox1 and check if they match with any of the references in field "Ref" of the Access table named tblLiterature.

If value in column D matches with Ref field of the Access table then change the status field of the Access table to the corresponding columns A,B,C named as "Withdrawn","Obsolete","Updated". that means if the column A of the corresponding Reference is Y then change the status field to "Withdrawn". If column B is Y then change the status to "Obsolete" and if column C is Y then change the status to "Updated".

Please see attached the workbook as this kind of workbook will be searched against Access table .

General :: Access 2003 Create Multi Column Filtered Table

Jan 4, 2013

create a datasheet from 2 odbc linked tables which I will be exporting to Excel. The resulting datasheet will have four columns, 'Purchase Order Number' 'Stock Code' 'Delivery Date' 'Unit Price'. The information I require in the datasheet is a unique stock code (one occurrence of each stock code) with the most recent unit price based on the last delivery date for each product. The linked tables contain many Purchase Orders for the same stock codes over a time period of a number of years where the unit price has varied.

Automatic Name Of Field When A Range Or Column Is Imported From Excel Into A Table In Access

Oct 9, 2014

When I import a column from Excel into a new table in Access using the Docmd.transferspreadsheet function, Access automatically assigns a field name of "F1"; and if I try to import a range of columns (Eg A1:B10), then Access saves them into a table with 2 columns with field names "F1" and "F2". The table is created as part of the Docmd function, and so I don't have control over the field names.

Is this going to always be the case? Can I depend on Access to always use this naming convention? Because I am about to start writing more code that will depend on these field names.

and if DATE is 09/07/2006 I want PAY PERIOD END to be 22/07/2006 etc

How do I do this?

Kind Regards,

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.

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.
