Vbscript Authenticate Users Follow

Hello,

We have an old label which  query prompts for User Name , Password and Product ID. It then looks up user and password in the database and pulls product information

from a different table. Product Information is displayed on the Data Entry From allowing user to enter few more data points prior to printing

 

We're changing the Auth process to use Active Directory. Is there a way to read user input from Query Prompts in VBSCript? If yes, could you help with an example. If not,

could you suggest an alternative?

 

Label is attached.

 

 

Thank you in advance,

Konstantin

The only VB scripting possibility you'll have here is via the "More Options" dialog of the query prompt itself.  You would refer to its value to set or get via the "value" keyword.

thank you Ian,

 

that worked. One issue I'd like to fix is to make Password query input not to show clear text. Any suggestions?

It's not possible to mask the data entry into a query prompt with password asterisks.
