    I'm using VBA in MS Access. How can I make an inputbox not show people's passwords when they are entering them? Is it even possible to do this through a function such as inputbox or would you have to use a textbox to do it..

    You could insert an active x control, Microsoft Forms 2.0 Textbox, and set the .PasswordChar to *.

    Or... you could just use an input mask with the word password as the format. You can put this in a bunch of places, within a table or within a text box on a form. You can't use inputbox to do this because it's too simplified of a command.
