    Unanswered: Windows Login -- Access

    I want to make a login to my Access application using the windows username and password.

    I know I can retrieve the user name by ..
    Environ$("UserName")

    Is there a way to retrieve the windows password, just for verification?

    Is this even possible to do this with a Access VBA application?

    Nope, that would create something of a massive, gaping security hole for anyone using access don't you think?

    Give them passwords just for your database. Tie the passwords to their NTAuth usernames.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.
