Hi

I have just worked out the login page and it works fine,  I now need to store the id of the login for use in the next form.

Private Sub btnOK_click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
                ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnOk.Click

        Dim SQL As String = "SELECT * FROM Surveyors WHERE SurveyorName = '" & txtLoginName.Text & "' AND Password  = '" & txtPassword.Text & "'"
        Dim sqlReader As SqlDataReader = RetrieveData(SQL)

        If sqlReader.Read Then
            globalSurveyorId = 1
            MsgBox(globalSurveyorId)
            Dim Main As New FormMain()
            Main.Show()

        Else
            MsgBox("Not OK")
        End If
        sqlReader.Close()
        sqlReader = Nothing

    End Sub

End Class

Thanks
