Hi

I have to create a database in SQL server from a client through delphi coding and then secure that database so that no one could be able to open it other than from my application.

How can i do this?

Any sample code available?

you can send the create scripts to the server with a Tquery to create the database.

I will not be possible to "exclude" other applications from the database. Only users...

this is not possible, but you could decrypt the field-contents, whereas the encryptor is only in your app available
