Some administrators do not want the password used to connect to the SQL database exposed to users. In these cases, the password can be encrypted so that an encrypted version of the password is present in the .pcf file or workspace configuration block instead of the "real" password.
Note: the encryption method has changed in BRCM V8i SELECTseries 1 (08.11.08.xx). Encrypted passwords from previous versions will need to be encrypted again, they will not be accepted.
Open a project DGN and use a tool such as Update BRCM Database.
