User Logged Id

P: 47
I am designing a DB that will be distributed among all users here in our company to retrieve data regarding our labor schedule containing things like Employee info , project info labor hours expended, report load date, and things like that, I think I have all this set up done, I will use a LogIn form to ask for UserId and Pasword so each one can access to load data regarding to themselves , and I am wondering if there is a way to check the windows user Id and pasword against the login data the current user is write down in logIn Form ? so he only can load info about he's work

any help will be appreciated

regards

Why not only have the windows nt username as the method of entering the database?

The userID is going to be just as good as having a password in my opinion. If you wanted to take it a step further you could have all of your usernames selectable in a drop down on the opening form and their password would be set to their windows nt username. No need for a visible password box, that way only the user who has selected their name that matches their nt username can enter.

Thanks Jerry and munkee for your responses
actually I just need the userId as you said, since everybody have its own PC and will load / review data regarding themselves.
I will give it a try next days and comeback with further doubts if any
