When I open a software program it requests a password.  I would like to program VB to enter the password for me, bytstoring it in the code.  Currently not having much success.

What program? But at a guess this will probably not be as easy as you would think it is.
ToddMuchAuthor Commented:
The objective as I mentioned is to have the task enter the password automatically.  It is always the same phrase each and every time.

If I wanted VB to enter a response how would I do that?  Typically one waits for the keyboard response, what I actually want to do is store the answer and have VB enter the phrase upon the request from the software.

Having a bit of a difficult time articulating but hopefully this will be of help.

If this is possible then the application in question will change the methodology eg web based, winform, java etc
So we need to know which application you are logging into
Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

The question will always be the same, it never changes, it just wants the password which is permanent.
The program is Robo-Forms which stores all of the passwords.  Once the first password is entered (which is what I want VB to do automatically) everything runs OK (at least so far).

The goal is to automate redundant tasks.  Which if I get this part, it should be OK, until I reach another hurdle.
Thanks for your effort,

I will have a look to see if it can be done BUT.....it is a really, really bad idea. The script (if possible) will log into your password manager circumventing the security Robo-Form has and providing access to all your passwords, credit card details and other highly personal information to whomever has your PC.

Robo-Forms acts as a single sign on and auto-form completion service and so you only have to enter your password once and then all other log ins are completed for you. This is a very handy time saving service and having to enter the master password is not redundant, it is a vital security measure.

Note: In an enterprise situation users have already signed onto a secure system and so having SSO in this case is OK. To implement SSO in this case you use RoboForm Enterprise Group Policies

Thank you Michael.

I'll dig in tonight after I leave the office and most likely follow your advice, that it is not a smart move.
