Private Sub START_TIME_GotFocus()
Dim strPasswd

   strPasswd = InputBox("Please Enter Admin Password", "Start Time is Restricted")

   'Check to see if there is any entry made to input box, or if
   'cancel button is pressed. If no entry made then exit sub.

   If strPasswd = "" Or strPasswd = Empty Then
       MsgBox "No Password Provided", vbInformation, "Password Required"

   End If

   'If correct password is entered unlock Start_Time
   'If incorrect password entered give message and exit sub

   If strPasswd = "JAX" Then

If your field is bound in a table, you can type the Input mask property of the field the text "Password" on it (without a quote).

If the field is unbound, in the input mask on the data tab of the field property, type "Password" on it (without a quote).

On the after event of the password field, put this code:

Me.Password = UCase(Me.Password)

Note: I assume that Password is the name of your field.

i got how the Ucase would work in my code

Private Sub START_TIME_GotFocus()
Dim strPasswd

   [b]strPasswd = UCase(InputBox("Please Enter Admin Password", "Start Time is Restricted"))[/b]

   'Check to see if there is any entry made to input box, or if
   'cancel button is pressed. If no entry made then exit sub.

   If strPasswd = "" Or strPasswd = Empty Then
       MsgBox "No Password Provided", vbInformation, "Password Required"
       Exit Sub
   End If

   'If correct password is entered unlock Start_Time
   'If incorrect password entered give message and exit sub

   If strPasswd = "JAX" Then
       Me.START_TIME.Locked = False
   Else
       MsgBox "Sorry, you do not have access to the start time", vbOKOnly, "Password Incorrect!"
       Exit Sub
   End If
End Sub
