Help,

I can't seem to figure out how to save a Base database with password protection. I want to have base prompt for a password when opening a specific database and deny access if the proper password is not entered.

Does anyone have an idea how this is accomplished?

Thank you!

Hi, as far as I know (and find elsewhere) Base does not support password protection. I got around the problem using an encryption software found at http://www.axantum.com/AxCrypt/ and it seems to work fine on Windows XP.

Next I need to find one that works with Linux. Smile

Hope this helps!

I am new to BASE, but would ask about this possibility ....

How to load a form automatically?
Have that form with fields for Name and Password, do your own programming to validate. Can have a table with good acceptance values.
If passes, open up the Main Menu, else Fail Message, Retry for x times, then Exit if still fails.

Also, can text fields have format for "secret" or "password" that uses "*" ?

This doesn't belong in this thread but you can just put a password-sign (like a *) in the corresponding property-dialog of a textbox. Then it wil be treated as a password-field.
