1. Enter the password as "AAA".
2. Enter "AAA" as the password.
3. Enter the password field as "AAA".
4. Enter "AAA" in the password field.

Can you advise which sentences are correct and which are not?

    'As' is more for the format, not a specific value. For example, enter your name as all capitals with no punctuation. So Casey Oda would be entered as CASEYODA

    #2 works for me. I think it is what I would usually say.
    #3 is the only one I think is wrong.
    #4 is fine. The Newt's improved #1 is good as well, but your original #1 isn't wrong to me.

    Thank you very much, all!
    Now I understand as follows:
    #1 Correct but unnatural
    #2 Correct
    #3 Incorrect
    #4 Correct

    Unfortunately, the OP has given us no context whatsoever.

    We don't know whether the program is providing the password for the user or trying to give an example of how to enter whatever password has been assigned.:confused::confused:

    Either way, the possible ambiguity of including the quote marks in the field is a problem.
