In MS Access 2007, we store user's password in a field of a table. How to encrypt this field so that user can't read the value of the field?

Thanks,

does the data in the password field actually need to be encrypted or is applying a Mast sufficient?
Open the table in Design view. select the password field and press F6 to access the properties. change the Input Mask to Password.
