SQL Permissions

Hi,

I have a SQL database.  Another applications needs to access this via a System DSN connection.
At the moment the only thing I have that captures which users need to access this database is a mailing list.
How do I best handle this?  Do I need to add each users into the database?  Should I create a single user ‘SoftwareAccess’ and distribution that same account to the users that need it?

Any suggestions appreciated?

"Another applications needs to access this via a System DSN connection."

That could be indeed a single SQL Login but then your APP must be able to challenge each user for ID(email) and Password and these indeed can stay in that SQL Database into a "UserLogin" table.
