I have developed a MS access app with a SQL backend. The ms access app uses recordsets to connect to the SQL backend and put or pull information. I have the sQL login credentials hard coded into the MS Access app vba code for the app to use each time it connects to the SQL database.
my problem is that for security purposes the sql password must be changed every 30 days. when this happens i need to update the password being used by the ms access front end. the only way i know to do this is to reissue the updated front end with the new password built in.
is there a method that can be used for the sql credentials to be dynamically stored and updated in the front end without having the send out a new front end. i do not want to store the credentials in a local table because they are not secure there.
