    hi, i am new in in the login form if i enter an invalid username the next time it gives me this error "Not allowed to change the 'ConnectionString' property. The connection's current state is open."

    any help with the following code

    Imports System.Data Imports System.Data.OleDb Public Class LoginForm1 Dim DbCon As New OleDb.OleDbConnection Dim dbUp As New OleDb.OleDbCommand Dim Read As OleDb.OleDbDataReader

    Private Sub OK_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles OK.Click
        DbCon.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=|DataDirectory|\login.mdb"
        dbUp.Connection = DbCon
        dbUp.CommandType = CommandType.Text
        dbUp.CommandText = "Select * from LOGIN where Username= '" & UsernameTextBox.Text & "' and Password= '" & PasswordTextBox.Text & "'"
        dbUp.Parameters.Add("Username", Data.OleDb.OleDbType.Variant)
        dbUp.Parameters.Add("Password", Data.OleDb.OleDbType.Variant)
        dbUp.Parameters("Username").Value = UsernameTextBox.Text
        dbUp.Parameters("Password").Value = PasswordTextBox.Text
        Read = dbUp.ExecuteReader
        With Read
            If .Read Then
                MessageBox.Show("Invalid Username or Password")
            End If

    Try this source code of mind:

    Dim strQuery As String Dim cmd As OleDbCommand

    Dim sda As OleDbDataReader
    Dim con As OleDbConnection

    con = New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=D:\My Files\Inventory\database\dbInventory.mdb;Persist Security Info=True;") con.Open()

    strQuery = "SELECT *FROM qryUsers_Group WHERE UserName='" & txtUserName.Text.Trim() & "' AND Password='" & FuncCls.EncryptPassword(txtPassword.Text.Trim()) & "'"

            cmd = New OleDbCommand(strQuery, con)
            sda = cmd.ExecuteReader
            If sda.Read() Then
                lblMessage.Text = "Password Successful."

    Else lblMessage.Text = "Invalid Password." End If


    if you want SQL i can give you, or even stored Procedure.
