VBA Oracle Password Form and function to pass parameters

I am trying to set up a MSAccess db with a function that collects and builds the ODBC connection to an Oracle db to run some sql and output a report.  I have all (what I thought were) the hard parts done.  Now I am building the security around the db.  

When the report is run and the function "strConnection"
that builds the connection is called up, I want a popup password form to open (frmEnterACSPswd).  The user enters their password, clicks the "Enter" button, and the password is passed to the function "strConnection" and the oracle db is called up and passed the parameters to log in.

Function strConnection(strServerName As String, strHost As String, lngPort As Long, strUserId As String, strPassWord As String) As String
I'm drawing a blank on how best to pass the password parameter to the function strConnection.  I think I am making this way harder than it should be.  Any suggestions would
be appreciated.

Thanks, Lynn

Hi,

I assume you have created the form that use to log user in. From that form just pass the userID and password only to the function. You do not need to have connection string return to you, just declare ADO connection object as public and make that ADO connection to open the string to you.

By making that ADO connection object  as public you will be able to access it everywhere from your VBA code. If you like to protect the VBA code then you should explorer this, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa139961(v=office.10).aspx and this, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa200349(v=office.11).aspx
