Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

To create a password-protected database through SQL syntax, specify the database password in the CREATE DATABASE statement. The password must follow the DATABASEPASSWORD keyword and be enclosed in single quotation marks, as in the following example:

CREATE DATABASE databasename DATABASEPASSWORD ‘Password’

    Sure...it just depends on how your users need to access the system. You can setup standard SQL Server accounts or use Windows authentication. Are you working with a developer or DBA to set this up?
