Can you change an encrypted database password?

Hi, this seems like a really easy question but I can't, for the life of me, figure it out.  Once we create a connect string in your load script and tell QV to encrypt the UID and PW it connects to the DB and puts the encrypted UID into the script as XUserID and treats the password similarly.

My question is, if the user name or password change on the database, is there any way to generate a new, encrypted xUserID and password and just replace the old ones with the new ones in the connect string OR must I create an entirely new connect string using the connect string wizard?

Re: Can you change an encrypted database password?

As far as I know, you need to use the wizard. You can use do it in a separate application, and then copy-paste the encrypted user and password in your original application.
