Hi, i don't know if I have the correct forum, so please be kind if I don't, and just point me in the right direction. This question will cover a bit of VBA and SQL. SQL I am familiar with, Visual Basic I am not, but here is my issue.
I am follow a coding example for a login system for Microsoft Access. It all seems straight forward, the code checks whats been entered into the login box, and password box, then checks it against a table of existing users. If it finds the match then access is granted to the database/application.
I wish to edit the code slightly so that the application also enters the users details into another table once he/she logs in, therefore creating a "logged in session status", that I can apply when the user logs in, and truncate out when they log off.
The bit of coding I need is solely to enter whatever was entered into the username/password box upon successful authentication/login. Here is the code template I am using.
Thanks to anybody with the necessary skillset to help me, in advance!
Private Sub cmdLogin_Click()
Dim dbs As DAO.Database
Dim rstUserPwd As Recordset
Dim bFoundWatch As Boolean
Set dbs = CurrentDb
Set rstUserPwd = dbs.OpenRecordset("qryUserPwd")
bFoundMatch = False
If rstUserPwd.RecordCount > 0 Then
'Check for matching records
Do While rstUserPwd.EOF = False
If rstUserPwd![UserName] = Form_frmLogin.txtUsername.Value And rstUserPwd![Password] = Form_frmLogin.txtpassword.Value Then
bFoundMatch = True
If bFoundMatch = True Then
'Open the next form here and close this one
DoCmd.Close acForm, Me.Name
MsgBox "Incorrect Username or Password"
