How to manage my passwords

avatoria2000 Hi.
Ido not understand how can I doo such a simple thing.
As example- I ask my compiler to generate 1000 passwords. That is ok.
Then I save them but...i get list without numbers!
So in such case- if my customer asks me for password (as example 456) I need to look at my file and cound them untill I find this exact password.
In other case I can see the number of the password in my compiler sequiity settings, but what I can do then- is to type it manually, because I can not copy it (or maybe I can but do not know how).
Such kind of managing my 1000 passwords is not so easy and I can do mistakes, isn't it?
So- how can I save the file with passwords in proper order and do not look for each one. This takes a lot of time.

Thanks for answer.
I hope my question is clear enough. I learn English- so please be patient if you see grammar mistakes:D

Alaska Wojie -

 Your English is much better than my Polish, believe me.

 First off, you can save your passwords in something other than just a text file.

Go back to your Security Page:

1.  Click on the Security tab.

2.  Double-click on any line.  a dialog box displays.

3.  click "Save" -  the Save file dialog displays.

4.  Click on the Save As drop-down list - Choose a format to save your list: a DOS/Windows text file will be unnumbered, but you can paste it into an Excel spreadsheet, or autonumber it in Word.

5. Or save it in a .asp, c, .JavaScript, or PHP format, and the list will be numbered for you, along with the appropriate coding of that format.

Now you have your passwords, and numbered them for reference when your user requests access to your book.

Another way to number your passwords is to paste the text-only list into an Excel spreadsheet.  

If that's the case, you can add a column of numbers to the left of the passwords.  Try this:

1. Paste your list of password numbers into the second column, row 1 of the Excel spreadsheet.

2. Then, in row 1 of the first column, enter a '1'.

3. In row 2, column one, type: '=SUM(A1+1)'

4. When you hit enter, it should display a '2'.

5. Copy the contents of cell A2.  Highlight the rest of the cells, A3 down to A1000.  Paste the formula into all 998 cells with one 'paste' command.  This will number your passwords, 1 - 1000.

6. At this point, you can save the file as is, or paste the columns into a Word table, or save it as a text file.  This is also useful when assigning the passwords to an array of your own design, for programming later.

hope this helps...
