Hi: I have a delphi program (BDS2006) which pulls data from our sage line50 accounting system via bde. I would like to schedule the program for out of hours but currently I am required to login. Is there a 'connection string" (I looked it up! I am a delphi novice but it is great for paradox tables!) that I should write that puts in the password. Say the database in bde is called "sage50" and i login is as say 'manager' with password 'poop'. I have inserted 'manager' in the user name field of the database in bde but there is nowhere for password to be so preset. Can this be done?
