A bit of plug-and-play boilerplate for storing passwords with SHA1 
See https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3174

While it's not the most secure of hashes and you will see internet alarmism about it being 
broken and not to use it, it's more than secure enough for most purposes.

Save credentials:
Currentdb.Execute "Insert into tblUsers (Username,PW) Values ('" & txtUsername & "','" & 
hashstring(txtPassword) & "');"

Validate credentials:

If hashstring(txtPassword)  <> DLookup("PW","tblUsers","Username = '" & txtusername & "'") 
then Msgbox "Invalid username or password!"

The Hashstring stored and compared will always be a 40 hex character string.

It would take a determined hacker a looong time to find out what password to enter to match 
the stored PW value:
