Hi Bill,
SQLite didn't have built-in password protection until a fairly recent
release and the SQLite library.  I dont recall which version.  The SQLite
library included with Livecode 8 is a fairly recent one and I believe
includes the password feature

Unfortunately, Livecode has not been updated to include the necessary
parameters to revOpenDatabase to pass in a password for sqlite, as you've
found. If you know the password, you can remove it using the sqlite3
command line tool but I'd have to reserach that further for you.
