WCF-OracleDB password

I have two WCF-OracleDB ports configured in my PortBindingsMaster.xml file.  One send, and one receive.  I already have an MRODBPassword setting in my SettingsFileGenerator and subsequent settings xml output files.  I laced my PortBindingsMaster.xml file as follows:

              <!-- ifdef ${ _xml_preprocess} -->
              <!-- <Password vt="1">${MRODBPassword}</Password> -->
              <!-- else -->
              <Password vt="1" />
              <!-- endif -->

I was hoping that although export binding does not include passwords that it would still respect their inclusion upon import.  That doesn't appear to be the case.  Am I doing something wrong?  If not, what is the best way of going about including this password in my deployment without requiring manual intervention beyond selection of the environment specific settings xml file?

Hi, try setting <Password vt="8"> instead of 1.

Worked like a charm!
