Default 2003 to 2007

My understanding is that if I upgrade a 2003 format .mdb to 2007 all security
settings will be gone. Can someone elaborate on just what that means? I
presume no login, no workgroup. How about database password? I am presuming
therefore that security is dealt with through the GUI - e.g. forms would
determine that the info in a table would be read only or the GUI would not
include links to certain features. But let's say that the person just shuts
down the switchboard form and leaps into tables. and gets what they want that
way. I need a little more info. Does it mean that a front-end/back-end would
be required? Are there any options that would give me a way of making the
database secure in the way that previous editions of Access did? Now I know
someone is going to leap in and say that it wasn't "really" secure before,
but if you really followed the process and removed the Admin from the Admins
group and made someone else Admin and used the logins/permission & passwords
plus the database password, and then "secured" it, I think you really were
pretty well covered. But that's just my opinion... All ideas most welcome.
