What I would like is on my login page have the usernames displayed in a dropdown list.  The user can choose their username from the list and then type in their password.

The database is called admin.mdb and the field I want to display is username

Thanks

Just plug this into your page

<!-- Start First Drop Down -->
<%
Set objDC = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objDC.Open Application("login_connectionstring")
Set objRS = objDC.Execute("SELECT Distinct username FROM Table")
%>
<FORM METHOD="POST" NAME="Form1">
<font face="Arial">Choose Your
    Username </font>
<SELECT NAME="username" SIZE="1" ONCHANGE=Form1.submit()>
<option selected><% = Request.Form("username") %></option>
<%
' Continue until we get to the end of the recordset.
Do Until objRS.EOF
' For each record we create a option tag and set it's value to the Department
%>

<OPTION><%= objRS("username") %></OPTION>
            <%
      ' Get next record
      objRS.MoveNext
      Loop
      %>
      </SELECT> </p>
      </FORM>
<%
' Close Data Access Objects and free DB variables
objRS.Close
Set objRS =  Nothing
objDC.Close
Set objDC = Nothing
%>
<!-- End first Drop Down -->

<!--Password Field-->
<%
'Some code to hide the password until we make a username is selected from the first
IF Request.Form("username") = "" Then
Else
'If username has a value then we allow user to enter password
%>
<FORM METHOD="POST" NAME="Form2">
<input type="password" name="Password" size="20">
<%
'Set a hidden value in the second form for the username
'so we can pass it along with the city to the next query %>
<input type="submit" value="Log In Now" name="Submit">
<input type="hidden" name="username" value="<% = Request.Form("username") %>"
</FORM>
<% End IF %>
