I had forgotten my SA password so I changed it.  Since then the third party database does not open and displays a message that it can no longer connect to the database.  Apparently the software uses the SA account to connect to the database.  I do not have maintenance on the software so the company wants $ to tell me how I can connect using a different user, or change the SA password so the software can connect.  I am wondering if this is a generic connection issue and can be solved by changing the password in an ini file.  The connecting information has to be somewhere, right?  
Thanks,
Jim
