How Do I create a "Normal" Microsoft SQL Server Bound Book?
"Normal" refers to authentication model. The "Normal" authentication model is the same authentication / security that you have with the File Bound Book. You only have the ability to specify a single password that protects the bound book from being opened.
- Open EZ Arms Keeper
- Go to File->New
- Select the “Microsoft SQL Server” Bound Book Type
- Enter the Server Name of the Microsoft SQL Server Instance. An easy way to discover the name of Microsoft SQL Servers on the network is to choose the “<Browse for more…>” drop down option.
- Enter or select the Server Name
- Choose the method connection method and enter appropriate database server credentials to create a new bound with
- Specify the Bound Book Name
- If you like you can also specify a Bound Book Password.
This is completely optional. If don’t specify a password EZ Arms Keeper will automatically open the last open Bound Book when the program is started. If you do specify a password when EZ Arms Keeper is automatically opening the last bound book you will need to specify this password as well as anytime you go to File->Open and choose this bound book.
- Make sure you haven’t accidentally checked the “Advanced Authentication” checkbox. With that box checked you would end up creating a “Advanced” SQL Bound Book instead.
- Click OK.
That’s all there is to it. You can now use the bound book exactly like you would a File Bound Book.
