"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sometimes it's incredible how you write your questions. We're experts, but not magicians. With the information you supplied it's impossible than any of us can give you a good code... Please, re-write your question providing the information that we need... what database (sql server, oracle, access, mysql...)? what running platform (windows forms, web forms, mvc...)? what version of .net framework? Is the password encrypted in any way? Is is possible that you provide your USERS table name and fields?

When i am descriptive then i get most of the general answers, and there are few experts only who actually reach out to help to solve the problem.

Anyways,
DB Server: Sqlserver
Database : dbac
Table:mstusers
Fields:username and password
Vb.Net 2008.

Try this:

    Public Function CheckLogin(ByVal username As String, ByVal password As String) As Boolean
        Dim output As Boolean

        Using connection As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection("your_connection_string")
            connection.Open()

            Using cmd As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM mstusers WHERE username = '" + username + "' AND password = '" + password + "'", connection)
                Dim ret As Integer = cmd.ExecuteScalar()
                output = ret.Equals(1)
            End Using
        End Using

        Return output
    End Function

Open in new window


Hope that helps.
