Sorry, Lester, I don't understand this. The password is being 're-entered',
albeit programmatically.

Thanks Helen (and Lester). As I suspected, my assumption was ridiculous.
:>) Perhaps I may be allowed to observe very gently that there might be
merit in putting some reference to this in the tutorial. OK, I understand
that keeping Help Files, Tutorials and Samples up-to-date with enhancements
is tedious, to put it mildly.

But the bad news is that, even if I change the setting to psNotSecure, I
still cannot connect to any database other than the one created by the
tutorial:>( Tried it with IB 6.01 instead of FB - same result.
