> "SELECT UseName, UsePassword FROM [CatsTable]"

[CatsTable] with brackets? have never seen that. What about:

SELECT UseName, UsePassword FROM CatsTable

I removed the "[]" and I received another error message:

Have you verified the connection to the database and that your table is named correctly?

there was a space in your table name on line 35.  it should look like this:

MM_rsUser.Source = MM_rsUser.Source & " FROM CatsTable WHERE UseName='" & Replace(MM_valUsername,"'","''") &"' AND UsePassword='" & Replace(Request.Form("textfield2"),"'","''") & "'"

Yeah, are you sure the table's name is CatsTable and it exists in the database?

The database connection test reports successful.  I can see the database table and its contents.

The mdb name: "cats.mdb"

The table name: "Cats Table"

Server: IIS

Error Type:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80040E14)
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error in FROM clause.
/cats/log.asp, line 13

Line 13  Recordset1.Open()

if the table name is cats table, then in your SQL you need to select FROM [Cats Table]

in the future you should avoid naming tables with spaces in them.

line 9:
Recordset1.Source = "SELECT UseName, UsePassword FROM [Cats Table]"

should cause line 13 to work.  ifyou get an error on line 35, then change line 31 to:

MM_rsUser.Source = MM_rsUser.Source & " FROM [Cats Table] WHERE UseName='" & Replace(MM_valUsername,"'","''") &"' AND UsePassword='" & Replace(Request.Form("textfield2"),"'","''") & "'"
