Chapter 24. Securing Multiuser Network A... > Understanding Database Object Owners...

Understanding Database Object Ownership

The user who creates an object becomes the owner of the object. (Access calls the owner of an object the object's creator.) Object owners have special status within the Access security system. The following sections briefly describe owners' permissions and how to change the ownership of database objects. A more detailed description of object ownership is contained in the file SECURE.ZIP, written for Access 2.0, that you can download from the MSACCESS forum on CompuServe.

Establishing Owner Permissions for Objects

The owner of an object has full (Administer) permissions for the object. No other user, including members of the Admins group, can alter the object owner's permissions for the object directly. For example, the Admin user is the owner of all the database objects in Northwind.mdb. Thus, anyone who uses the Admin user account has full permissions for all objects in Northwind.mdb. This is one reason for assigning a password for the Admin account.
