    Password Input mask (2000)

    I have a query that has a password field. It is a parameter query. When I go to the properties for that field, It lets me put in an input mask for password but when the query asks for password, the password shows and not the ******* .

    Do you happen to have something in the Format property of the password field in the table or of the password text box on the form? That would probably overrule the input mask.

    Oh, wait a minute - the parameter prompt knows nothing about input masks. If you want the password to remain hidden, you shouldn't prompt for it in a parameter query. Use a form instead.

    I didn't think you could use an input mask with a parameter query such that the data input would be ***. The input mask would be driven with data in the table, that is, when you see the data in the table it would be masked as *** but not when you input the data via the parameter query popup.

    If you want to have the password input as *****, then you would need a separate form to do this; not a parameter query.
