Using NT Login for application login in VBA (Access 2007 and Excel 2007)
Posted on 2010-09-14
I have the need to test a users login credentials before letting them procede past a certain point in my appication. the reason that I need this is that my application needs to open up multiple site and other applications that use the NT username and password.
What I have been doing in the past, is to get user name and password, then then pass it to one of the websites and then see if login was successful, if not, then retest for login, if so continue.
This has been working ok in the past, but now I have the need to test before login in to the other sites as some people dont have access to the same set off websites. The application that require login are harder to testfor and again, differnt sets of application depending on the user.
Is there an API or something that will test against NT LOGIN credentials?
I am posting this in the web section as we since there must be a way for the websites to test for this as well.
