Password login form

I would like to develop a password login form.  I have a table setup with UserName, and Password.  Everyone will have an initial password of "password".  But the first time they log in to the database I want them to have to change their ready-made password.  Then once they've established their new password it will be their password until they change it.  So I also need a way for them to change their password.

One more thing... they should get three attempts to enter the correct password.  If they don't enter their correct password after three attempts I want the database to close.

Has anyone done this before?

While it is possible and has been done numerous times, this method isn't very secure. For instance, reading the password from the table.

A quick google search will give you several solutions.

Attached is a sample I found on the net ages ago.

...and here is some brute force code to restrict the login attempts to 3

Dim bytCounter As Single

Do Until bytCounter = 3
    If InputBox("Enter Password") <> "Password" Then
        MsgBox "Incorrect Password"
        bytCounter = bytCounter + 1
        If bytCounter = 3 Then
            MsgBox "you failed to login after 3 attempts," & vbCrLf & "...please contact your supervisor"
            Exit Sub
        End If
    Else
        MsgBox "login successful"
        Exit Do
    End If
Loop
