Automatic Password Entry

You have a password on the 2nd DB but not on the first?

If you have the same password on the 1st DB, then when the 2nd DB opens automatically, the password will be auto-entered.

OR...

In the 2nd DB, go into Edit/Preferences/Document, and set the default password to the one you want.

I can't use the 'same password for both' idea as the 1st database is being opened by a Scheduled Task so I would need to automatically enter the password for that one anyway.

If would prefer all my users to enter their individual passwords at startup so wouldn't setting the default password make this unusable??

I have the same !

I use a 'low level' password (common to all files) and allow the 2nd DB to open using the default password - the 'low level' one.

This way every one else must use their correct passwords, otherwise they get no service.

Alternatively use AppleScript as folows:

tell application "FileMaker"

open "DATABASE" with "PASSWORD"

end tell
