I need more info on login/password file

I have another question concerning my previous query on creating a login/password file. As I'm only a beginner, I would appreciate if anybody could answer this in simple coding.

I need to create a program that will:

* allow the user to enter a login and password
* check the login against a list of valid logins
* if the login is invalid, then display an error message and  allow re-entry
* if the login is valid, then check password
* if the password is invalid, then display a error message and allow re-entry.
* if password is valid, then display a message indicating success.

Note: two arrays should be used to store valid logins and passwords.

I would really appreciate any help on this question.

Hi wdw1971,

   I have not see your previous query. I guess that you have add a login in dialog(built-in) from VB. (Select login dialog when you add file) Right?
 
If yes, it's easy to achieve it.
(You may store an  user and password in the same array )
When user press OK(click event),  you check through the array(s) for the user name and password. If success, you can unload the form(Unload Me).
If not success, you can pop error message. This will not unload the form.
Hope this help

Thanks for the reply, but I want to know how to use two arrays, as oppose to using one to store logins/passwords.

Hi wdw1971,

  I think you should get all the user name and password at one query. And then assign it to the arrays sequentially so that the
password of the user in array 2 should have the same index of user name in array 1
You just search through the first array to check user name if not find then prompt error and then "exit sub"-- (skip the remaining parts")

If you find if you should store the index of it and then check the password in stored in array 2. If not match then prompt error.
