Access to encrypted data

Value "V1" (of the table "PS_T1") is encrypted in database (with the "encrypt" method). A field on a page is prompting on this table. I'd like to decrypt this value "V1" when the user access to the prompt. How can I do this ?

    Replace the editbox prompt, with a dropdown on a derived record
    On the rowinit of the dropdown (if on level 1>) or component (if on level 0) create a rowset that fetches the data from the prompt table..

    Now populate the dropdown by looping trough the rowset and decrypt the encrypted data using buildin function Decrypt

    something like this:

    &FLD = GetRecord(Record.[derived]).GetField(Field.[dropdownfield]);

    &rs = CreateRowset(Record.[yourprompttable]);
    &rs .Fill();

    For &I = 1 To &rs.ActiveRowCount
    &CodeIn = Decrypt+(&rs.GetRow(&I).GetRecord(1).FIELD.Value);
    &DescIn = &rs.GetRow(&I).GetRecord(1).DESCR.Value;

    &FLD.AddDropDownItem(&CodeIn, &DescIn);
