keep getting the same answer either way

Note: LastLogIn is a DateTime Stamp

 V: Variant;

V:= tblAccounts.Lookup('UserName; Password', VarArrayOf([U,P]),'LastLogIn');

Your best bet is to convert to queries. They are much more efficient and flexable, esp when you want to use multiple tables.

If you need to use a TTable, use the locate method. You will not be use Variant so Locate will be more efficient.
