    Um, why? If you're talking about how the password is stored, that would be INCREDIBLY insecure.

    Are you trying to retrieve/reset a password?

    If you want to retrieve a lost password from the database, that is not possible you need to reset it instead: http://codex.wordpress.org/Resetting_Your_Password

    Thanks for your help,

    No i wont to use the username and password to login to software that uses a database for username and password and i don't no how to make it so it can decode MD5 hash passwords.

    Is there anyway i can auto export WordPress user names and passwords to a new database so i can use that one not the one WordPress uses if you no what i mean

    Thanks

    @ntentsoft - In theory, yes. There seems to be varying success with integrating WordPress into other software and vice versa. (Bunch of search results here.) Would help if you mentioned what specific program you are referring to.

    It may well be more complicated than is worth it - and could be something you could accomplish with a plugin rather than an entire separate software. (Or there could be a plugin that helps with the integration even.)
