What about the question that I posed regarding some sort of encryption on
the Exported Account Info? This is a SERIOUS PROBLEM in my humble opinion
and is causing me to re-think my strategy of using Emerald to
automatically create the accounts on my Unix system. This cuts out a large
reason for choosing Emerald and will force me to use Humanoids to enter
and setup the accounts.

I would propose, also, that in some future versions of the software an
"Export" module be included that would allow you to select specific fields
to be exported and the format of the Export File. There are times when a
Comma Delimited file would be easier to deal with. There are also times
when only a pair of fields might be neccessary. Having the control would
be an excellent selling point.

I assume that you are simply exporting the output from an SQL query?
