Provides a password, stored in an encrypted fashion in a data source.
Data sources are stored on disk as a file or in the registry. Storing passwords on disk may present a security problem. For this reason, when you enter a password into a data source, it can be stored in an encrypted form.
On Unix, this information is stored in the system information file (named .odbc.ini by default).
For more information about how the system information file is located, see Using ODBC data sources on Unix.
If both the Password (PWD) connection parameter and the EncryptedPassword (ENP) connection parameter are specified, Password (PWD) takes precedence.
