I created a table with a field for password as binary. When viewing the table in Web Matrix, I see Byte[]Array instead of the hex numbers that I see in code used by Scott for MD5. I can see the username which is a varchar. But the verification check will not work. I am new and wondering what the problem is here. Scott&#039;s article is at : http://aspnet.4guysfromrolla.com/articles/103002-1.2.aspx<BR>Thanks very much.<BR>John
