Problem/Question/Abstract:

Assign a password to a Paradox table

Answer:

To assign a password to a Paradox table, use the following unit and call function TablePasswort like this:

uses Unit2;
// ..
TablePasswort(Table1, 'secret');

unit Unit2;

interface

uses
  BDE, SysUtils, DBTables, Windows;

function TablePasswort(var table: TTable; password: string): Boolean;

implementation

function StrToOem(const AnsiStr: string): string;
begin
  SetLength(result, Length(AnsiStr));
  if Length(result) > 0 then
    CharToOem(PChar(AnsiStr), PChar(result))
end;

function TablePasswort(var table: ttable; password: string): Boolean;
var
  pTblDesc: pCRTblDesc;
  hDb: hDBIDb;
begin
  result := false;
  with table do
  begin
    if Active and (not Exclusive) then
      Close;
    if (not Exclusive) then
      Exclusive := true;
    if (not Active) then
      Open;
    hDb := DBHandle;
    Close
  end;
  GetMem(pTblDesc, sizeof(CRTblDesc));
  FillChar(pTblDesc^, sizeof(CRTblDesc), 0);
  with pTblDesc^ do
  begin
    StrPCopy(szTblName, StrToOem(table.tablename));
    szTblType := szParadox;
    StrPCopy(szPassword, StrToOem(password));
    bPack := true;
    bProtected := true
  end;
  if DbiDoRestructure(hDb, 1, pTblDesc, nil, nil, nil, false) <> DBIERR_NONE then
    exit;
  if pTblDesc <> nil then
    FreeMem(pTblDesc, sizeof(CRTblDesc));
  result := true
end;

end.
