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

Open in new window

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.
