Default passthrough password

Is there a way to create passthrough queries without the password in the connection string, then allow the user to designate a password once for all the queries run so they don't have to keep entering the password for each query?

Hi Michael,

Welcome to the forum! I won't be conscious much longer, but they are some true Access geniuses that might be online in a few hours. Could you provide more details about your database?

I am assuming that you are linking to an external DB. What kind is it and how are you connecting? ODBC, etc.

All the best,

If the users are connecting to a SQL server, and you are using a DSN, then they will only have to log on to the server the first time they run a query or open a table etc.

This assumes that you have set up an account that uses SQL Server authentication, and not Windows NT authentication.

Does this help?
