No, I mean, the list of companies/databases!

Oh, I read the above that the list of companies would be on the *login*

proposed... so NEVER MIND :-)

Yes, that's true.... getting some users to remember database names 
(which is a rather admin choice, and sometimes one has to rename/change
things for silly reasons) is sometimes hard...
