I have been using a simple Logon form. The password is encrypted in the immediate window, and I then copy and paste that hash into the password field. This works in the attached database as far as matching is concerned.
There is no problem for me to create a "Welcome123" temporary password which I create and paste the hash for, but, I would prefer not to be involved in hashing their new password.

In other words, in the reset password form I would like to run a function that hashes their password and copies it into the t_Users Password as the newly hashed value...

Does anyone have a version they would be willing to share? With my limited knowledge I do not want to reinvent the wheel, and I would be more comfortable knowing this is something recommended from people that do understand a strong version vs a weak one.

My current Login database is attached if anyone would like to look. The encryption part is from a Steve Bishop video on You Tube and he cautions that it is very weak.
