Dear Sir,

I have an application using Paradox and Access2000 files. Out of my app in Delphi 5 Enterprise, I wouldn't like people could open my paradox or access tables. How do I provide a password so that only my app is able to open the table?

Thanks

With Paradox tables you can password protect them using the Table Restructure option in Database Desktop/Paradox.  To supply a password from your Delphi application simply use

Session.AddPassword('YourPassword');
