    1. don&#039;t put it in a web-viewable folder<BR>i.e. if your site is in c:inetpubwwwroot , put your DB in c:inetpubdatabases or something<BR>2. failing that - put IIS authentication on the folder it contains. then only users with the password can download it.<BR>3. last resort, add a password through the access interface. if someone does download it, it&#039;ll at least slow them down, if not stop them stealing the data.<BR><BR>j<BR><BR>[Microsoft MVP]<BR>
