    Password Protect Forms

    Hey

    I have several forms in a database. I want to password protect two of these. How can I do this? I have heard I can use VB in the two forms to prompt a password parameter like box and if entered correctly, it allows the user to continue, and if not, it does not let them. Is this possible?

    Thanks,

    try:
    Code:
    private sub form_load()
    if inputbox("enter pw", "secured form") <> "password" then
       docmd.close
    end if
    end sub
