Chapter 33. Complex Security Issues > Controlling Security Via Code

Controlling Security Via Code

You might not always be available to set up security for the users of your application. Of course, one alternative is to make sure that they purchase their own copy of Access and then to instruct them on how to maintain security using the user interface. Access security is very complex, though, so this solution is not particularly practical. In fact, if you are distributing your application to a large group of users, this option is an impossibility. Fortunately, you can build into your application code the capability to maintain all aspects of security directly. It is important that you give your administrative users the capabilities to establish and maintain security for their workgroups. This involves building a front-end interface to all the security functionality provided by Access. Behind the scenes, you can use DAO code to implement the security functionality.
