One vote for good one vote for bad.......any others?....... I lamented whether or not I would suggest changing the password, I had thought about just disabling the profile but thought it could cause other problems. I do not believe it is good practice to use ANY of the "Q" profiles for day-to-day activities. These should be assigned to a profile created to meet company naming/authority standards. This was mearly a troubleshooting exersize. Bryan ======================================================== GOOD IDEA! My experience has been that administrators, not to mention managers, want to know if applications have hardcoded passwords. ========================================= BAD IDEA. If you change the password for QUSER and there are applications with user and password hardcoded then they will stop working. Clearly you don't know if this is the case so how are you going to set the password back? =========================================== John one way to check and see if it is really QUSER, Change the password for QUSER. If QUSER is hardcoded into a DSN or some such thing this would surely break it. You should then be able to narrow down what is happening.
