How do I prevent the createuserwizard from creating the user?

I want to stop the creation of a user ID in the user database if the created ID does not match a list of pre-authorized users.  I have a function that compares the username of the createuserwizard control to a database of authorized users.

Protected Sub CreateUserWizard1_CreatingUser(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.LoginCancelEventArgs)
        Dim chkID As Boolean
        chkID = CompareUserName()
        If chkID = False Then Exit Sub
    End Sub

I put it in creatinguser event but exiting the sub if the users do not match, does not prevent the user information from being written to the user database.  How can I interrupt this process?  I am using vs2005 and visual basic.

Thanks,
John

Instead of "Exit Sub", try "e.Cancel=True"

Here's the MSDN info about that argument:
