Hello,

My name is David.

Are all the computers running Windows 7?

What version of Access are you running?

Just to clarify, you need all the front end computers to have access to the backend database but not the computer on which the backend database is running, correct?

we set it up so they are on the same homegroup and network
Software technician: syseng, Systems Engineer replied 5 months ago

Ok then on the computer that has the backend Access database, click the Windows Start button then click the Search box and type

homegroup

in the search box and then click the HomeGroup item that appears in the search results.

Select "Change what you’re sharing with the Homegroup."

Disable everything you do not want to share with the Homegroup, and then select Next and then Finish.

Then test by connecting over the network from one of the frontend computers to the backend computer to determine what other items are still accessible that should not be accessible and let me know so I can provide instructions on configuring those specific items as well.
