Astonishing! I wonder what source code you were using...??

Here is a copy/paste out of the Tutorial1 project that is installed with IBO 4.2Fn:

{ The login information has to be set via the appropriate properties. }
Username := 'SYSDBA'; // Remember to set this appropriately!
Password := 'masterkey'; // Remember to set this appropriately!

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you get the latest versions of these files (which are in both the IBO 4 eval and the registered download.

It would still be interesting to know when and where you got that so we can fix things up. What version of IBO are you using? (Check the Version property on your IB_Connection).

REPEAT - Get the right version of the Tutorials, please...and of the eval, too...
