Password defined as SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS but not being recognized when entered

A table has been created that has two fields (i.e., UserId, UserPswd) defined to be SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS.

When I enter the user id that is not in its proper case, my program issues the correct message indicating that the user id is not correct.

However, when I enter the user password that is not in its proper case, the program accepts the password as being correct.

Can someone tell me why the SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS works for one field but not for the other?  Do I need to do something else to get it to be recognized.

Thank you.

Is this for your code?  Are you sure you don't have code that converts the password to all upper or lower case or ignores case?

The passwords are encrypted, but when accessing or reading the passwords, they are decrypted.

I was able to determine the issue.  I needed to append the clause "COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS " to the password after it was decrypted.  Once I appended the clause, the function was performing properly.

Thank you all for your input.

Since I was able to resolve this issue myself by appending the clause "COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CS_AS " to my query statement , Administrator can you please close this question.  Thank you.
