I added a new role Viewer. and unchecked Acquire Permission Settings' 
the checked view for role Viewer. after that i add a user user1 with 
Viewer. I suppose i will be able to access myfile.db by prividing user1' 
password. but i failed!!! i can not access it. Can somebody give me a 
hint to settle this problem?
