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.
