I am using the following to bring up a form that prompts for a user name from a drop down list and then checks it against a database. There are three user names only. Depending on which user logs in I want it to go to a different Form.
Let me know how:

Option Compare Database
Private intLogonAttempts As Integer

Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)
'On open set focus to combo box
Me.cboEmployee.SetFocus
End Sub

Private Sub cboEmployee_AfterUpdate()
'After selecting user name set focus to password field
Me.txtPassword.SetFocus
End Sub

Private Sub cmdLogin_Click()

'Check to see if data is entered into the UserName combo box

    If IsNull(Me.cboEmployee) Or Me.cboEmployee = "" Then
            MsgBox "You must enter a User Name.", vbOKOnly, "Required Data"
            Me.cboEmployee.SetFocus
        Exit Sub
    End If

'Check to see if data is entered into the password box

    If IsNull(Me.txtPassword) Or Me.txtPassword = "" Then
            MsgBox "You must enter a Password.", vbOKOnly, "Required Data"
            Me.txtPassword.SetFocus
        Exit Sub
    End If

'Check value of password in tblEmployees to see if this matches value chosen in combo box
   
    If Me.txtPassword.Value = DLookup("strEmpPassword", "tblEmployees", "[lngEmpID]=" & Me.cboEmployee.Value) Then

        lngMyEmpID = Me.cboEmployee.Value
         
         
'Close logon form and open splash screen
               
        DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmLogon", acSaveNo
        DoCmd.OpenForm "Switchboard Forum"

        Else
        MsgBox "Password Invalid.  Please Try Again", vbOKOnly, "Invalid Entry!"
        Me.txtPassword.SetFocus
    End If
   
'If User Enters incorrect password 3 times database will shutdown
   
    intLogonAttempts = intLogonAttempts + 1
    If intLogonAttempts > 3 Then
        MsgBox "You do not have access to this database.  Please contact your system administrator.", vbCritical, "Restricted Access!"
        Application.Quit
    End If
   
End Sub
Private Sub Quit_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Quit_Click


    DoCmd.Quit

Exit_Quit_Click:
    Exit Sub

Err_Quit_Click:
    MsgBox Err.Description
    Resume Exit_Quit_Click
   
End Sub

Assuming that the line:

    lngMyEmpID = Me.cboEmployee.Value

Sets the ID of the logged in user, then you simply need to use an If statement or a Select Case to redirect appropriatley. Something like:

   Select Case lngMyEmpID

      Case 1
          Form1.Show

      Case 2
         Form2.Show

      Case 3
         Form3.Show

   End Select

Where you put this code depends on how you want your app to behave.

Hope this helps.
