    Unanswered: password table/form fields *****

    Does anyone know what kind of protection is on password formatted fields in tables and fields?

    I've created a simple logon to my access database with passwords stored in a table and would like to know as to what extent I can depend on them.

    They are not very secure. I believe (in 97 anyway) you can just copy and paste the field into (say) Word and it'll show you it in normal text.

    My mistake. You can't actually copy them but you can export the whole table into (say) a text file and you can read them.
