Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) a password for connecting to the host when AutoSignOn is True. If the recorder is on when you use a dialog box to enter a password, the password will automatically appear in encrypted form in the resulting procedure. If you create a procedure that asks the user for a password (for example using the GetPassword or PasswordBox methods), you must use the SetEncryptedString method to set the encrypted form of the password.
