Hi guys,

I have to write an application which checks the password of an access database ( access 97 and access 2000+), the reason for this is that we have various versions of a  system deployed, the db is identical, except for the password. As a result we need to access the db to change some tables, and need to get the password in order to access the db. The obvious solution is to create 2 separate apps, we would like to have a single app which cjecks which version of the system is present on various installations. I would like to be able to get the password as a String

Thanks
Sam

" The obvious solution is to create 2 separate apps, we would like to have a single app which cjecks which version of the system is present on various installations. "

Are you sure the obvious solution is that one? If you really know the passwords for the database what does it cost you to build only one app that asks you at start your password and tells you if the password is correct.
And if it is not you should be able to put in the other password... if you know it of course.
