I am using Access as a front-end to Oracle.  I created a login form that takes username and password.

On the textbox that takes the password, I put an input mask of password so user will see ****** instead of password.   But when I try to pass the connect string to oracle, the password stays ******....  how do I pass the real password?   Do I have to decrypt the password string or something?
