Thanks for your suggestion. I think you might be referring to the CHKPWD
command Al Barsa recommended. That will
be great for re-verifying the user who signed on. We do that at times. But,
the problem is that it verifies a password against the user profile of the
person who has signed on - not just that it is valid. Hence, the need for
an API that would pass a different user profile ID to what I was hoping
would be the CHKPWD command. Guess I left that out of the first message.
Thanks again for you help.
