Change Passwords

The Change Password utility allows you to change the read and write passwords for a Data Table. To change the password for a table, select Option 7 – CHANGE PASSWORDS from the Utility menu. This will display the Change Table Password screen (see Figure 158).

Change Table Password Screen

Insert the name of the table you wish to change the password for, and the name of the library in which it resides. If the table is already protected by a write password, you must type the password in the Write Password field. Insert the new read password or the new write password, or both, in the appropriate fields. If you wish to remove an existing password from the table, insert an asterisk (*) in the appropriate field.

Once you have completed all of the necessary information on this screen press <PF2> to change the password.

A new generation of the table is created which can be accessed using the new passwords.
