ACC1x: Do Not Have Permissions to Modify Secured Report


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access versions 1.0, 1.1


When you are trying to print a secured report, you receive the error message "You don't have permissions to modify <report name>."


This problem will occur if a person other than the application's creator attempts to preview the secured report using a different default printer than the default printer that was in use when the application was created.


Create the following macro and add it to OnClose property of the report:

   Macro Name      Action    Argument
   Secured Report  SendKeys  {ESC} 


This behavior no longer occurs in Microsoft Access version 2.0.


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

NOTE: To reproduce this error you need to have a database with security already implemented.

  1. Log into Microsoft Access as any user other than Admin.
  2. Create a new database.
  3. Import the Employees table from the sample database NWIND.MDB.
  4. Use the ReportWizard to create a new report based on this table. Save the report as Report1.
  5. Create an AUTOEXEC macro with the following actions/arguments:

           Action      Argument   View
           OpenReport  Report1    Print Preview 
  6. Assign execute permissions to the report for all groups and users.
  7. Quit Microsoft Access.
  8. In the Microsoft Windows Control Panel, select a different printer for your default printer than what is currently selected.
  9. Start Microsoft Access, and then log in as a different user than the one who created the report.
  10. Open the database created in step 2. The report will open in preview mode.
  11. Close the report. Note that the error occurs.
