Hello

  You can add password to paradox table using the BDE API, Here's an sample

uses
  Bde;

procedure AddMasterPassword(Table: TTable; pswd: string);

const
  RESTRUCTURE_TRUE = WordBool(1);
var
  TblDesc: CRTblDesc;
  hDb: hDBIDb;
begin
  if not Table.Active and not Table.Exclusive then
    Table.Close;
  if (not Table.Exclusive) then
      Table.Exclusive := true;
    if (not Table.Active) then
      Table.Active := True;
  FillChar(TblDesc, SizeOf(CRTblDesc), #0);
  with TblDesc do begin
    StrPCopy(szTblName, Table.TableName);
    StrCopy(szTblType, szPARADOX);
    StrPCopy(szPassword, pswd);
    bProtected := RESTRUCTURE_TRUE;
  end;
  Check(DbiGetObjFromObj(hDBIObj(Table.Handle), objDATABASE, hDBIObj(hDb)));
  Table.Close;
  Check(DbiDoRestructure(hDb, 1, @TblDesc, nil, nil, nil, False));
  Session.AddPassword(pswd);
  Table.Open;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  AddMasterPassword(Table1,'password');
end;
