I'm surprised a login with no password could get authenticated to

access the database. I know password-less logins have failed for me,

and others in this group. Perhaps the security has been relaxed on

your server machine/database?

It works. Maybe because the password for each log on that is the same

on each machine is also the same, i.e. the same logins and the same

passwords on each machine. I don't know. Actually, now I have much

more pressing issues which you will see elsewhere (names: gkc & gkent)

related to my server computer dying and trying to figure out now what

to do with my offline databases. If you have any insight into those

issues, I would be most grateful. Thanks. -- gkc
