I use a commercial software package that uses Btrieve/Pervasive SQL. There are times that I need to write an additional application to perform some small function. The vender provides the DDFs but they are password protected, so if I want to view a file using Access, it asks for a login name for the database and a password. If I use VB or some other program to perform some function to a particualr table, I must first export the table and then create a new table with no "owner" and import the data to it. Then I don't need to provide an owner name, and if their software provides one, sinse there is no owner it ignores it. Question is, is there a way to determine an owner name for a table or a valid user name for the DDF or a "hack" to change them without knowing them, or some other method to simplify this process?
