in thread Creating a rainbow table for a ten-digit number: Advice?

The Public Key idea is excellent, and is part of the solution. Unfortunately, I cannot use a public key as part of the data entry toolset - because I am restrained by using MS Access for data entry. If I was able to do the data entry system in Perl, your suggestion (and the module that would likely get most of the heavy lifting done) would be a godsend.

I fear I have asked a question without a complete enough spec, and so have become mired in clarifications, rather than looking at solutions. I should learn my lesson, but apparently, I have not yet done so.

    I'm pretty sure that there would be some way of handing off the input number from Access to a perl script for encryption. Of course, you may not be interested in doing that.

    But if you were, one possibility would be to have a perl script running in the background acting as a DDE server and then use a VBA macro to pass the number and retrieve the encrypted version. It's old technology, but simple to set up. Far easier than COM.
