I am moving an app from Access to MSDE and have created a utility to backup and restore sql database using DM0 in VB6. I would also like to include functionality to change the login password and to shrink the database. Can anyone provide some code for these functions? Thanks.

I got these examples from the BOL.

This example changes the password for the login Victoria to ok.

EXEC sp_password NULL, 'ok', 'Victoria'

This example decreases the size of the files in the UserDB user database to allow 10 percent free space in the files of UserDB.

DBCC SHRINKDATABASE (UserDB, 10)
