6. Multiuser Issues > 58. Implement Unique Usernames

Implement Unique Usernames

Even when Access Security isn’t active, you can implement unique usernames when all users are Admin.

Access Security is great in many multiuser situations because you can assign rights to groups and individuals. However, sometimes this is just a lot of overhead. In a small group of users who all use the same objects, you don’t get much added value by implementing security.

The downside of not using security is that all users are given the name Admin. You can confirm this in an unsecured database by going to the Immediate window (Ctrl-G in the VB Editor) and typing the following:

	?CurrentUser

The CurrentUser property contains the logged-in name of the user. When security is on, each user has a specific name. When security is off, all users are Admin.
