I don't know of any API which will verify a user ID/password. Maybe someone
else does. However, I have an API (TNAPI) which you can call to perform
interactive functions in batch. You could use it to try signing on with the
user ID and password. Kind of kludgy but it would work.

        Evan,
        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.
