convert password DB to Non Passord DB

Postby CarverRon » Wed Aug 01, 2012 3:11 pm

If a Db is created with the need to enter user and passord, how can it be converted to a non user, non user password?

What version? In DFD 5.x this isn't possible as Name is a required field.

Otherwise create a new DB without a username and password and install the forms and data from the DB you have now into it.

In DFW, just open the Users form and press [F2]. This will create a new blank user record.

Thanks, I was hoping for a different response. As I was trying to eliminate the user file creation error, by not having a user.
So when we create a new DB, the user file is always created, no matter what, even if it a blank record.
