This would make a string of random characters and numbers and random length between the values passed.


Public Function MakePassWord(minLength As Integer, maxLength As Integer) As String
      Dim x As Integer
      Dim y As Integer
      Dim z As Integer
      Dim strout As String
      Randomize
      x = Int((maxLength * Rnd) + minLength)
      For y = 1 To x
            Randomize
            z = CInt((255 * Rnd) + 1)
            strout = strout & Chr(z)
      Next y
      MakePassWord = strout
End Function

Private Sub Command1_Click()
      MakePassWord 1, 22
End Sub



u could easy mod it just to create letters and numbers and not strange characters

Heres a better one.



Option Explicit

Public Function MakePassWord(minLength As Integer, maxLength As Integer) As String
      Dim x As Integer
      Dim y As Integer
      Dim z As Integer
      Dim strout As String
      Randomize
      x = Int((maxLength * Rnd) + minLength)
      For y = 1 To x
            Randomize
            z = CInt((255 * Rnd) + 1)
            Do While (z < 65 Or z > 90) And (z < 97 Or z > 122) And (z > 57 Or z < 48)
                  Randomize
                  z = CInt((255 * Rnd) + 1)
            Loop
            strout = strout & Chr(z)
      Next y
      MakePassWord = strout
End Function

Private Sub Command1_Click()
     MsgBox (MakePassWord(1, 22))
End Sub

Hi,

Here is a version on a routine I wrote to generate a password based on the user's name. The important line is the 'CODEUP' bit. This generates the small alogrithm. Hope this helps ...

Dim TheDate As Date   ' Declare variables.
        primedate = "15/03/1968"
        TheDate = Date
        dayz = DateDiff("d", primedate, TheDate)
        Password = TxtPword.Text
        passlong = Len(Password)
       
        Dim word(250)
       
        For loopy = 1 To passlong
            word(loopy) = Mid$(Password, loopy, 1)
        Next
       
        codeup = dayz
       
        For loopy = 1 To passlong
            codeup = codeup & ((Asc(word(loopy)) * 2) + dayz + 633) 'Add 633 This Could be anything
        Next
       
        Text2.Text = codeup
        TxtPword.Text = ""
        TxtRetype.Text = ""

        Call CmdCommit_Click
