Break into a Pervasive SQL Database without password

Break into a Pervasive SQL Database without password

(OP)
Hi fellows,

The answer for my question is very probably a NOOOO WAY!. However, here it comes...

I have an application developed by a guy who I can't contact anymore. This application connects to a Pervasive SQL database and I can create more "application defined users" however, I can't get access to the database tables directly. Is there a way to overcome this situation?

Best regards,

Mauricio Peccorini

RE: Break into a Pervasive SQL Database without password

What error are you getting trying to get to the data?  If you don't have the password, there's really no way to get to the data other than through the application.
What are you trying to do and what error are you getting?

What I need to do is create several Crystal Reports that run against this database. The problem is I canĀ“t connect neither from Crystal Reports nor from PCC nor anything.

Thanks anyway,
