I'm currently working with two databases, one with all the data and the other with all the coding and forms ect... I want to password protect the database with all the data to prevent unauthorized access. I'm using a connection manager function to link the two databases and if I password protect the data, the connection manager can't connect. Does anyone know if I could put the pw in a table and have it read in to allow access? Sorry if this is confusing... I'm just an intern looking for answers. If you need more elaboration, let me know.
