In VB6, you can use the Textbox' Validate event.

e.g.:
The function CheckedInDatabase() should check the information in the database, and return True when ok,
and False when not ok.
Private Sub Text1_Validate(Cancel As Boolean)
    'check in database    
    If Not CheckedInDatabase(Text1.Text) Then
        Call MsgBox("Sorry, not found in database")
        Cancel = True
    End If
End Sub

Be sure to set the CausesValidation to False on your Cancel or Exit button otherwise the user won't be even able to close the form.
