Change Password form

Using a change password form, I can check the current password, I can check that the two new passwords match but I can't add the new password to the table! So a pretty big omission in functionality! This stuff below currently works and is the way I've gone about it, but for reference purposes: Code: Private Sub CheckCurrentPassword_Click() Password.Value = Me.UserNameBox.Column(2) If OriginalPassword = Me.UserNameBox.Column(2) Then MsgBox ("Password Is Verified") passwordverified = True Else MsgBox ("Password Is Incorrect") passwordverified = False End If End Sub Private Sub BtnConfirmPassword_Click() If txtNewPassword <> txtNewPassword2 Then MsgBox ("passwords do not match") Exit Sub End If If passwordverified = True Then me!

NB: The aforementioned Password textbox basically holds the value for the adjacent column in my "username" combobox, which holds: UsergroupID;UserGroupName;Password me! Doesn't work. Creating Login Security using Access VBA. First, let me state that Access is not the most secure platform.

Filter a Form on a Field in a Subform

The Filter property of forms (introduced in Access 95) makes it easy to filter a form based on a control in the form.
