Thanks for the timely response. This would be a database that I am
building myself. The question comes down to is there a feasible way to
verify a user's user name and password from inside that database.
Obviously the file would be encrypted, but if there is going to be
more than one user using it I suppose there would be a separate file
for a log-in. I am just asking for some guidance on how this would
theoretically be implemented.

Thanks again,
