Multiple DLookup Criteria

Post by burrina »

strAdminPWord = InputBox("Password required to proceed.", "Enter Editing Password")

tblspecialaccess
specialid
username
pswd
frmname

Need a dlookup statement to get the value in the above fields! WHERE the pswd = strAdminPWord for that username

For example to retrieve specialid:

DLookup("specialid", "tblspecialaccess", "username='" & strUsername & "' AND pswd='" & strAdminPWord & "'")

strUsername is a variable containing the username you want to get the information for.
Regards,
Hans

Creating your own code to manage passwords is ALWAYS going to lead to security holes. If this password is just to prevent mistakes then that might be fine, but if you are protecting sensitive personal or business data then please use a secure password implementation from a reliable source.

This process is just for the right to be able to edit a certain fields value. It is separate from my normal security protocol.
Thanks
