You can't it is one way hash algortim. You can try to use this hash as password hovever but you must skip encoding.

The password is not encrypted, it's hashed.  It can't be reversed.  If you need to give a user their SQL Login password, why not reset it?


you are right, it had reset for pwd.
Glad we could help.  Please close the question at your convenience.
