Logon with Separate DNS and DBQ (Yours my need to look like this Logon).

The Logon Form includes an Event (On Click in Connect) that verifies the Username/Password for the Database.  This Event code builds a connect string and tries the connection (using SELECT SYSDATE FROM DUAL; Really, that is all you need.)  It then applies that successful connect string to every Pass-Through Query in our MS Access Database (we call it BannerAccess).  It can do several hundred in a second or so.
