I have this sp that allows an admin to change a user's password but not sure how to validate that the admin user has a 'Role' of 6 (admin) thus allowing the user to make the change.  I also need to send an auto email to the user who had his or her pw changed with the new password...Thx


CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[usp_AdminChangeUserPassword]
 
 @administratorUserID int,
 @userID int,
 @newPwd varchar(20),
 @RetStatus tinyint = NULL OUT

AS

BEGIN;

      UPDATE u
      SET u.User_Password = @newPwd, u.Date_PW_Change = getdate()
      from tbl_User u join tbl_Registration r on u.UserID = r.UserID
      WHERE (@UserID = u.UserID)
      and @administratorUserID =


      SET @RetStatus = CASE WHEN @@ROWCOUNT>0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END;

END;
RETURN;
