The form sizes on the laptops are continuously being tweaked to accommodate, especially, any of the laptops we use. The form size was increased to accommodate the screens on the laptops which are small but have a high native resolution.
The password for the ccmdb.mdb is known as "the tasty password". If you don't know it, and need to know it, talk to Trish or any data collector. All data collectors need to be thoughtful as to who they give this password out to.
The CCMDB.mdb is using the same password everywhere. This used to be required to make sure the PDAs work. It is now required because collectors cover at different locations and using different passwords would get people to write them down. Since laptops are pointsec encrypted as well this should not be a problem.
