I copied a client's DB to my laptop to do some changes. But they have a security file OGC.MDW with permissions, and I can't access the forms or data.
How do I bypass this security file while I work on the file on my laptop?
Thanks

Hi,
If their security is properly set up, you'll need a copy of the OGC.MDW file and a valid username/password to log in.
Then you'll either join the workgroup or create a shortcut to start access with command line options, supplying the full path to the OGC workgroup file:
Shortcut: "C:\AccessDir\MSACCESS.exe" MyMDB.mdb /wrkgrp "C:\MyDir\OGC.MDW"

The easiest way to remove the security completely from a MDB is to copy the database's objects to a new database. Once you have logged in (with the OCG.mdw workgroup) create a new database and import all the objects from the protected database.
o disable the security in your copy of the OCG.mdw file, you'll first have to log in as a user that belongs to the Admins group. Then you can:
1) set a blank password for user Admin
2) include Admin in the Users group
3) give full permissions to Admin
