So far we have been using single database. Now we want to connect to multiple database.
I had created the second database and When i connect to multiple database i get the follwing error.

** SETUSERID/USERID functions require one connected db or db argument. (691)

Since i have the keywork "Userid" in several programs, it will be impossible to change them to userid("dbname").

Is there any other solution?

Not that I'm aware of.

...it will be impossible to change them...

I assume that by "impossible" you mean that it will take extra work. Or can you elaborate?

With limited resource we have its not possible to change the keyword "userid" which is used in more than 3000 programs. Since we had single database, userid worked fine. Now that we want to split the database , we have to change all the programs whcih has userid to

So i want to know if there is any other way.

We went ahead and changed the programs to refer userid(dbname).
