Are you using User Level Security for this? Or are you trying to roll your own security/login scheme? If ULS, then DAO has several methods available, and ULS will validate users for you. To change a user password:

DAO.NewPassword "OldPass", "NewPass"

If you're rolling your own ... that's a pretty tall order, asking for a pretty much complete validation and navigation code set. It's pretty simple to validate a user against a table:

Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
Set rst = Currentdb.OpenREcordset("SELECT * FROM YourTable Where YourUserName='" & Me.SomeTextbox & "' And YourPassword='" & Me.someOtherTextbox & "'")

If Not(rst.eof and rst.bof) then
  '/user wasn't found

Else
  '/user was found - move to a form
  DoCmd.OpenForm "SomeFormName"
End if
