Default Authentication help, please

I am working on a project for my department where users will be able to view their reports on line. Everything is working well, except they want me to change the default page where they type a username and password (which is in an access database)and use their windows log in username and password (which is different from what is in the access database)instead. I know there is a way to do this but I have no idea how to code this and where to even put the code. Any help?

If this is an intranet site, you can just put windows directory security on the folder that contains the reports. IIS will issue a windows challenge/response security check and the browser will pop up the login. Then they just enter their windows login and they have access to the directory.

Work smarter, not harder.
