Access 2007 security is extremely different than that of its predecessors. For example, Access 2007 security eliminates user-level security. These changes to security have major implications for the applications built by an organization's employees. This Short Cut covers new topics such as using an Access 2007 database in a trusted location, encrypting in Access 2007, and packaging, signing, and distributing an Access 2007 database. It also covers how security works with databases created in other versions of Access. Finally, it covers the process of running unsafe expressions. All of these topics are vital for securing and successfully working with an Access 2007 database.
