    Unanswered: RE: How to mask data of a control in Access

    Hi everyone,

    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 don't want to encrypt the table I just need to text box in Acces to display some character other than the password. I set the Input Mask property in Access w/ *** but doesn't seem to work.
    I'm using AC2K FE and SQL Server 2K BE via VBA.

    textbox: properties / data / inputmask = Password

    works fine for me with a2k/server2k - promise!

    currently using SS 2008R2
