any ideas on how to compare input with database?

hi! i'm trying to write a program here where a user will enter his identity number and VB will compare the number with the existing number in the database... i'm using Access. How am i going to do that? Considering that when the user clicks onthe submit button, VB will call the database and compare the ID number. anybody can give me that code?

"Select * from table where ID = " & Textbox.Text

If recordset.count > 0 Then
 'the ID matches
Else
 'it doesn't match
End If

This may not be exact, but it is pretty close.  You will have to change you table and field names.  Hope this helps.

Dim objDBConn as ADODB.Connection    
dim rstTemp as adodb.recordset

Set objDBConn = New ADODB.Connection
   
With objDBConn
     .CursorLocation = adUseClient
     .Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.3.51;jet oledb"
     .Open "c:\DB.mdb"
end with

set rstTemp = "SELECT Count(*) AS RecCount FROM table Where UserID = " & UserID

if rstTemp!RecCount > 0 then
    'ID matches
else
    'ID does not match
end if

rsttemp.close

objdbconn.close

Recordcount is not a reliable one. I would prefer to use the BOF and EOF properties. Also Use TypeConversion function since the value from textbox is of type string only.

The code is

Private sub Command1_Click()
  If rs.State = 1 Then rs.Close
  rs.Open "SELECT User_Name FROM table_name where id=" & CLng(Text1.text), cn
  If Not (rs.EOF And rs.BOF) Then
    msgbox "Welcome" & rs("User_Name")
  Else
    msgbox "Authorization Required" & vbCrLf & "Please Try again", vbExclamation
  End If
End Sub
