Q. If I am using an ODBC database (say SQL Server). Is the remote administration module and properties of the OCX useless to add and remove users from and ODBC database?

A. Not completely useless. There is the ability to add/search/remove users etc from an ODBC database, BUT ONLY if you are using a Standard Select Statement, and ONLY if your database has no other fields that AuthentiX doesn't know about. (See aspAdmin/default.asp, click on "Access List", click on "ODBC Users").

For example if your customer record has a zip code field which is a required field, there is no way AuthentiX can know about this, and so adding/modifying the record will fail. You will have to create your own ADO/ASP code, but you can still use the samples in the aspAdmin/ODBC as a starter sample.

The software will still validate users in your database regardless of their format so long as they have a field for the username and a field for the password somewhere.
