Full Version: Using Login Information On A Form
UtterAccess Forums > Microsoft® Access > Access Forms

Hi,
I have a login form set up where the user will provide username and password. I was wondering if there was anyway to save this data so that I can use it on other forms (just the username). I know that I could just ask them to reinput it, but it would be much more impressive if I could autopopulate the field with his information.

Hi,
One possible scenario is that instead of closing the login form, you just hide it:
Forms!LoginForm.Visible = False
Then in your other forms, you can refer to the username textbox:
=Forms!LoginForm.Username
Hope that helps...
