ODBC Linking Problem

    I have an Access 2002 front end to an SQL 2000 SP4 back end. I have been
    using this application for several years with no issues.

    I have set up an SQL userID that has the proper permissions so that when I
    link to the SQL server, it prompts me for the password adn then I can link
    the appropriate tables and use teh SAVE PASSWORD option.

    THe problem I am having now is that when I try to link one of the SQL
    tables, I am no longer asked for a userID and password. It is automatically
    using the logged in user's password (administrator) and so I cannot enter
    the one I created for the SQL database

    Then, when a user tries to access these tables, the system tries to use
    thier local credentials rather than the SQL username and password that I
    specified and they get an access error.

    So, the question is, why did Access/ODBC stop asking for the username and
    password when linking tables and how do I fix it?

    THanks

    In your ODBC DSN there is a setting where you can choose between SQL Server
    Authentication (what you want) and Integrated Security / Trusted Connections
    (what is apparently set now).

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
