PASSWORD (8 bytes)

The password with which this table is to be opened. If the command is Open for Read (OR), either the read or write password may be supplied. Other commands requiring a password should supply the write password.

If the table has only a read password defined, then the write password defaults to the read password, and it must be supplied for the table to be opened for write. The password is given in the PASSWORD parameter.

The LOCK-LATCH provides some protection for tables once they are opened (see 9. LOCK-LATCH (8 bytes)).
