hi,

I've got this little challenge this week.

I do have a MS Access built in 2003 using security workgroup. There is a function called "displayRights" with the following attribute

Public Function displayRights (userName As String) As Boolean
    displayRights = GetUserBoolValue(userName, "DisplayPrices")
End Function.

This is used to get the logged in username from that Workgroup and determine if he can access the price tags in other forms where VBA calls this variable.

What I would like to do is to create the same global variable (instead of changing the whole vba on each form.

I have create a login form, that calls a table where is myUser and myPassword. In the same table there is a field where I do specifiy (0 or -1) if the logged in user has right to access price tags.

The question is How can I store this login information so I can call it every time a form is opened and make sure the proper right is applied.
