Question Storing encypted password on one step?

I have a LOT of StarTeam steps in my script, which of course requires a username and a password. Anyway to store an encrypted password in one step, and then use it via %PASSWORD% where password is required for all the StarTeam steps?

Put the password in an encrypted macro, then reference that macro in the password fields of each step.

I have VBPro 7.2, and when setting up a Set Macro step, I don't see an option to encrypt the value.

I see it now. I go to the Macro tab and right-click it there.

The Set Macro action doesn't currently support encrypting the value. Add the macro manually in the Macros pane, or use script like this in a Run Script action:

Application.Macros(vbldMacroTemporary).AddEx "PASSWORD", "password", , , , True

This is now supported in the Set Macro action in v7.5.
