Wonder if anyone can help? Currently users are accessing via an application
using the appl ID and Password to connect to the SQL database. The SQL Server
is deployed using standard security. The appl ID and pw is stored encrypted
in an INI file and the appl decypts it and send the ID and Password in clear
to connect to the SQL server.

Is there any way to store this appl ID and Password encrypted in the database
and still allow the application to connect to the SQL Server?
