I have created a simle program that utiliazes a Microsoft Access 2000
database. This database includes a user name and password that are passed by
the application. The database is not encrypted at this time, but this is
little trouble to employ. Both the database and program are distributed on
disk, and are not functioning as part of a network.

During a recent Microsoft Seminar, I asked the instructor just how secure
the database was from undesired access. His answer was not too comforting.
While I may be overreacting to his comments, it seems that Access security
can be easily compromised, whether encrypted or not, by anyone familiar with
the security features of MS Access.

While it is nice to be able to use the strengths of the Access database for
my program, I would like to make sure that it cannot be easily compromised
should someone want to copy and pirate the information contained within that
database. Any comments or suggestions?

Thank you.
