  • Storing My Data In An Encrypted Format

    Hi!

    Well, I don't think this thread will as popular as the
    Visual Designer thread but here goes... ;-)

    I have a text file which I store some lookup data in. At runtime I read the data from the text file into an array in order for me to perform the look ups against the data. The data consists of about 35,000 records and is completely static.

    What would be the best way to store this data so that the user of my app can not view the data within the text file? Is there a way to eliminate the external text data file completely so that the data is built into the exe or .dll? Should I store the data in a password protected database format? Any input would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!
    Scott
