Hi

I am using udfPassword function. I am creating password for mailaccounts. The problem is that I am printing the password in excel and there you cant see the different between big i and little l.
Can I generate password and exclude some letters ?

I have done the following code:

Code:
 ; Create password with no i or l characters
$x = 0
While $x < 25
 $x = $x + 1
 Sleep 0.5
 SRnd(@msecs) 
 $Password = udfPassword("Aaacnnnn",,"il")
 ? "."
 For $Count = 1 to 8
  If SubStr($Password,$Count,1) = "i" Or SubStr($Password,$Count,1) = "l"
   ? $Password
  EndIf
 Next
Loop	


What I can read the function udfPassword should NOT produce any iIlL but when I run this code the password can have these letters.

Please take a look at this script from Richard.

I was going to write a fancy KiXform for this but ran into some issues with the graphics that I couldn't sort out and then Shawn went missing so I've dropped it for now

Excellent UDF script though, just no GUI for it at this time.

I don't see how this is strictly a UDF/kix issue - just change the font in Excel to Courier - any serif typeface, actually, and the difference will become clear. Using a fixed-width font like Courier will also lessen any chance for mis-reading the password, especially if it is a complex sequence.
