Use PSTL without being 'sa'

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to perform PSTL activities without having to log in as 'sa'?

Vote for the above post if you agree. Now that we all have this tool, it's becoming more of an issue. With security being such an issue this day and age, casually asking for the 'sa' password so that we can change a Vendor ID seems rather extreme.

It's time to give the Controller the right to control the accounting system's details without the ability (and liability) to drop all of the company's databases.

This must be 'hard-coded' into the Dexterity script, let's vote to get that coding removed!

Until next post,

Leslie
