Using Access 2007, I have a login page which lists the names from a table. That table has a value for password. Came someone direct me as to to how to password protect the sign on. Another words when the user picks his name a popup requesting password is what I need. Just looking for a good linke to a description or something. Thanks

If I hold down Shift when I open an Access database, I can bypass pretty much anything you have to slow me down. This would apply to your scenario too, unless you use some pretty hardcore protection using VBA, which is outside of the scope of this website. –  user3463 Aug 23 '12 at 15:24
    
What Randolph means is, because of the "Shift-Open" trick, locking your Access application with the screen you just described is completely useless. Despite the name "Access", Microsoft Access is incredibly poor in computer security (access, authentication, authorization and audit). See also Is there any way to authenticate user in a ms-access database?, which doesn't need passwords. –  William C Aug 23 '12 at 19:36
