Securing Your Project As an .ade File

When you distribute Access projects to users, the only security you can apply on the client side is compiling the project as an encoded .ade file to prevent users from making design changes to the front end and gaining access to your VBA source code. If you specify integrated Windows security for the back-end SQL Server database, which is the most common configuration for SQL Server, you can't apply password protection to the project.

Note

Like .mde files, macros aren't protected from design changes in .ade files. Few Access developers used macros in applications written in Access 95 and later.
