Updating a table using SQL

I'm trying to update a table using the following code and keep getting an error 3144 syntax error in the update statement.  If I take the where clause out it updates all the passwords in the table.


 
SQL = "UPDATE SECURITYABS SET " _
    & "PASSWORD = '" & UCase(txtNewPW.Text) & "', " _
    & "WHERE USERNAME = '" & UCase(txtUserName.Text) & "'"

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Take the the comma out

SQL = "UPDATE SECURITYABS SET " _
    & "PASSWORD = '" & UCase(txtNewPW.Text) & "'" & _
    & " WHERE USERNAME = '" & UCase(txtUserName.Text) & "'"

You may also want to look at using the replace function anytime you are inserting text into your db.  If there is a single quote in this string it will mess everything up.

pseudocode

Replace(textusername.text, " ' " , " '' ")

Of course you would have to take the spaces out, I just put them in to try to illustrate it more clearly.
