I have a LiveCycle form that connects to a MS Access database. Can you tell me how to hide the computer network path to the database that appears in the pop-up window asking the user for permission to connect to the database. I've heard that you can hide just the path and the connection will still work. That way if you send the form out of the building, others cannot see the path to our databases.

I have no experience with this. However, I would think that you could use a variable. Set the value of the variable to the path to the database. Then change the pop-up window to have the variable. Not sure if that will work or not, but seems like it would be worth a go.
