    Paswords are stored in the master.syslogins-table. Yet, they are encrypted.
    If you want to transfer it to another server or somethin like that, you can select that password from the source-server, an update the destinationserver-syslogintable with the specified value.
    Retrieving a password when a user forgot his password is nog possible as far as I know. You can change his/her password so they have a new one, but that's all.
    I'm not crazy, I'm an aeroplane!

    Thank you, Martijn!

    I'll stop looking for a way to retrieve the paswords then.

    Thanks again!
