Person who use computer for many tasks often has to remember many passwords. It is possible to save all your passwords in one file on desktop, but then any intruder from internet may read the file and get access to your accounts. It is better to keep all your passwords in password protected database. I will show you how to create a password protected MS Access application to store your login, passwords, and accounts.
First we need to create a database and a table. For details you may read my tutorial Database Design and Implementation.
Open MS Access and click File, New. Then select empty database. File New Database window displays. Enter file name password_keeper.mdb and click Create button. A new database is created.
Select Tables in Object panel and click "Create table in design view" Table1 window displays in design view. Enter fields names and data types.
|target||text 100 characters|
|Login||text leave default 50 character|
|Password||text leave default 50 character|
