We use Business Objects @variable format to define the database user id in the database connect string. This passes the BO id through to
the database as the database id. Obviously the database and BO ids have to be in sync. For passwords we define a static database password
and define this password in the database connect string area in BO. This still allows for the full password change capability in BO, and
yet the end user doesn't know what their database password is. This prevents them from using some other tool to access the database.
