VB Question MS Access. Trying to direct Users to individial forms
Posted on 2004-09-20
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
Private Sub cboEmployee_AfterUpdate()
'After selecting user name set focus to password field
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"
'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"
'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"
MsgBox "Password Invalid. Please Try Again", vbOKOnly, "Invalid Entry!"
'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!"
Private Sub Quit_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_Quit_Click
