    Passwords (v97)

    Is there some way to display asterisks for passwords on the actual table? If not, what other security measure can I take so this is not visible. The database is shared and given the current setup I cannot disallow others to directly reference the db.

    Ensure that you don't have a format set for that field (the format will take precedence over the input mask when displaying data), and set the input mask to Password.

    Be aware, though, that you haven't really protected the password at all. Your tables should *not* be visible to your users except through forms and reports. There you can control what the users see and have access to.
