    Password Protect Forms

    I am using switchboard to allow my co-workers to access their data that I keep up to date for them. I am needing to password protect the two forms that I have to enter and edit data allowing them to use the forms to display and print their data. Is there a way to do this?



    I have placed a no addition, deletion or editing on the display and print Forms. But I am wanting to keep them out of the Enter and Edit Data Forms.

    Thank you for your help on this matter

    This may be a round-about way of doing it, but couldn't you create a little "Password" form, and then on the "On Click" even for whichever button it is to enter the data modification form just say

    Code:
    if form_password.text1.value is not "password" then
         cancel event '(I can't remember the exact command)
    end if
    I'm not sure if that is what you're looking for or not. Hopefully it helps though!

    Why dont you create different form with different acces rights each?

    Example form1 would have (read only), form2 (read and edit), form3 (read, edit, delete).

    Then create you a password box so that based on username it would take them to the proper form based on the users access rights...

    Or you could change the value.visible = "true" for different buttons (ie: Edit, Delete) based on access rights.

    Hope this helps..
