    then i would make it a single sign on account, so you can change the windows password and it automagically changes for sims too.

    @IAN_ictds / jinnantonnix - is it safe for that to be made public? could the info be used to hack a db ... obviously you'd need admin access to the sql to run the script, just wondering if we should be publishing the full method including hashing procedures - i don't understand it all so just asking...?

    I don't think there is too much risk because if you browse the database the mothod is quite easy to see. Although, it's better to be safe than sorry. I'll remove the code from my original post.

    Thanks. Better to share by pm if absolutely required, but as it's not for a live environment, it's pretty academic.
