    How can one change the Password Inputmask Character from an asterisk to something else?

    My career depends on this one!

    Do you mean that, when you specify a password for the whold .mdb file? You can not change that.

    Also the password box when you specify a .mdw, you can not change it. form

    You just type Password in the input mask.

    Go on then Odders, if you give up then you can tell us the answer ! Don't keep us in suspense.. (joking)

    I don't think that anyone understands your question.

    Is it that you are trying to change a textbox input mask from standard text to password, then instead of overlaying the characters with an asterisk a 'different' character is displayed ?

    If not then I give up too !

    I understand that PASSWORD will create a password inputmask.

    What I'm asking is what is the formula for that inputmask.

    ie. 00/00/0000;0;_ ...is the formula for 'Short Date'.

    Access does not share it ... I have a custom password interface and the textbox contol has only the input mask of "Password" ...

    I think that the world may never know ...
