I've designed a front end for a database and sometime the database path, username, and password may need to be changed. I was wondering if there is a way to save these values inside of the executable instead of a log file or something. Thanks for any help.

To save these values in the executable, you must hardcode them: each time they change, you must recompile.

You can save them in a DSN.  The advantage is that the values are changed in one place for all applications.

You can save them in an encrypted file.
