A client on our AS/400 requires a production ID set up with extra security to allow the programmers to do some things they cannot do with their own ID's. What I want to do is when one of the programmers logs on with the production ID call in a program that will have the user enter his or her own ID and password and update a log before allowing them into the production ID. Has anyone ever called in the password API in a program that allows you to compare a users password? If so how is it done? Thanks in advance.
