    Unhappy Unanswered: Re: How to encrypt a column in SQL Server

    Hi everyone,

    How can you encrypt a column in SQL Server?? I have a text box in Access when user types in his/her password I would like the field to display something like **** in the text box. The password field is a field in a table on SQL Server.
    I'm using AC2K and SQL Server 2K.

    Thanks in advance.

    To make the control show asterisks, set its password attribute.

    To encrypt the data, pick an encryption algorithm and implement that algorithm in your Access MDB or data project.

    Yeah, I know we've done it before... I think more than once actually.

    I just figure that if we consistantly give the same answers, eventually it will help solve the problem. Maybe I should have just posted a link to one of the previous answers, but I was feeling too lazy to go find it just then. I've been kind of busy lately, and that often leads me to take the easy answer instead of doing it up properly, especially if the easy and proper ways both generate the same results!

    but it is kind of a waste of my employers hard paid salary to have me redudently goofing off.

    I suppose that's true, but they are rarely discriminating about goofing off. I've never heard of a case where redundant goofing off was treated differently than applied goofing off was.

    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.
