How to create a password for access forms

I have created the password for the form, as directed by the experts here, but i have to create another password for the form, that has "add material number". I have attached the database for u, if you can open the database, the main menu appears and pops up a password dialog box, I need exactly same asking for a pasword the user clicks the "add material menu". In my database, a password box should appear as it appears for the "main menu". can you please give a suggestion. Thanks

each form requests the password for its form name.

so go into tblpassword and add an entry for :
[objectname]                           [keycode]
ADD NEW MATERIAL MENU       whateveryouwantthepasswordtobe
if you add this code to any other forms you would need to add those to tblpassword as well.

ok. it seems the password code was not working for me so i changed it.

anyway first open main menu form in design view and rigtclick the "ADD NEW MATERIAL NUMBER" button and choose properties.
under the events tab doubleclick in the emy text behind onclick (so it says [event procedure]) and then click the button behind it.

insert the code to open the form:

 End Sub

then open the "add new material menu" form and in the properties window under events doubleclick behind the "on open" event. i changed the on open code to:

Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)
   Dim Hold As Variant
   Dim tmpKey As Long
   Dim I As Integer
   Dim rs As DAO.Recordset
   Dim db As DAO.Database

   On Error GoTo Error_Handler
   ' Prompt the user for the Password.
   DoCmd.OpenForm "frmPassword", acNormal, , , , acDialog
            Hold = MyPassword
' Open the table that contains the password.
   Set db = CurrentDb
   Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("tblPassword", dbOpenTable)
   rs.Index = "PrimaryKey"
   rs.Seek "=", Me.Name
   If rs.NoMatch Then
      MsgBox "Sorry cannot find password information. Try Again"
      Cancel = -1
      ' Test to see if the key generated matches the key in
      ' the table; if there is not a match, stop the form
      ' from opening.
      If Not (rs![keycode] = CStr(Hold)) Then
 ' above line was changed from :     If Not (rs![keycode] = keycode(CStr(Hold))) Then
         MsgBox "Sorry you entered the wrong password." & _
            "Try again.", vbOKOnly, "Incorrect Password"
         Cancel = -1
      End If
   End If
   Exit Sub

   MsgBox Err.DESCRIPTION, vbOKOnly, "Error #" & Err.Number
   Exit Sub
End Sub
