Just FYI justmiracle78,

After you make the changes to your tables you will have to go to each form that those fields reside on and make the appropriate changes there as well.  Otherwise user will think that they are inputting different information.

I feel so stupid, I was doing that earlier but it was giving me an error. But I finally realized what the error was about. It's because I had it opened. So I was not able to customize.

I want to know how can create a splash page and assign password?

That is a little more involved.  Also, the rules via EE will not allow you to ask multipule questions in one thread.  Please open a  new question regarding a password proteced splash form, and I would be more than happy to help you out.
