How do I generate an MD5 hash in MS Access 2003
Posted on 2008-10-30
I have a project where I need to take an internal identifier to our system and send out an MD5 hash of that value to an external system. I am using MS Access 2003 as my application front end. I have seen several references to "System.Security.Cryptography", apparently in the system.dll, but when I add a reference to that object I do not see this object path, or frankly anything that I expect to see related to security and or cryptography.
So, is there a way from within MS Access to generate an MD5 hash code? What exactly do I need to do?
