Update overwrites password encryption

Hello World,
DataAssist created admin page Update for any data submit is upon submit re-encrypting the stored password (SHA1).
I have failed to find or fix the compare and post if different function.
Update page loads all attributes of Users details including password (masked SHA1), submit executes to db, sends confirmation email, details are stored correctly however password is now an encryption of the encryption.
OSX10.8.2
DW CS6 ver12.2 build 6006
Data Bridge 1.1.3
Design Extender 1.1.1
eCart 5.0.7
Free Tools 1.0.2

in the update code i see the following for the password:

$WA_AB_Split . "".((isset($_POST["UserPassword"]))?WA_SHA1Encryption($_POST["UserPassword"]):$row_WADAusers["UserPassword"]) ."" . $WA_AB_Split


what this does is:
-check to see if a password is posted.
(isset($_POST["UserPassword"]))?

-if one is, encrypt it:
WA_SHA1Encryption($_POST["UserPassword"])

-if not, use the one that is already in the database:
$row_WADAusers["UserPassword"]

so, to prevent the password from being re encrypted, leave the value of the password field blank:

php:
<input id="UserPassword" name="UserPassword" type="password" value="" class="formPasswordfield_Large" tabindex="2" onBlur="hideServerError('UserPassword_ServerError');">



this way it will only encrypt the password if a new one is entered, otherwise it will retain the old one without re encrypting it.

Great

I could swear I tried that during one of my many revisions! The functions are now as expected. Thank you for the assist Jason.

The page function has changed after applying an edit in Universal Email 4. The value statement has been removed as detailed above however after subsequent edits to email statements and passed values, now it is posting a value for password. It is not modifying in a encryption loop as per the original request, however it is consistently writing a specific value when none has been entered. Upon successive updates without a new password the value remains the same, however it is no longer the original password. I have gone through numerous permutations to attempt to remedy the issue.
