Show *Enter Password* in a Control

When you have a Log On Form you can indicate what is to be entered by using the Format Property of the Control.  By doing it this way the only value stored in the Table is what is entered, Enter Password is only for display.

In the Format Property of the Text or Memo field:
;@;”Enter Password” or @;”Enter Password”

If you want it to be in red use:
@;[Red]”Enter Password”

For Combo Boxes use:
@;\”Enter Password”
