I am developing an Access 2003 application using VBA code.
For my log on screen, I use a combobox control for the userID,
a text box to enter a password and a submit command button to validate the
values.

the tblUserSecurity1 table has the following fields:
primary key    recordnum             AutoNumber
                              userID                     Text
                              securityLevel        Text
                              password                Text  

The combox displays the userID but is based on the following Row source:
SELECT tblUserSecurity1.recordnum, tblUserSecurity1.userID FROM tblUserSecurity1 ORDER BY [userID];  

My log on FORM code is as follows:
After the Login ID and password are entered, the following error occurs:

Run time error '2001':
You canceled the previous operation.

The system stops at the line:
strUSERRIGHTS = DLookup("secLevel", "tblUserSecurity1", "[recordnum]=" & Me.Combo25.Value)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 If IsNull(Me.Combo25) Or Me.Combo25 = "" Then
       MsgBox "You must enter a valid login ID.", vbOKOnly, "Required Data"
       Me.Combo25.SetFocus
       Exit Sub
    End If
   
    'Check to see if data is entered into the password box
   
    If IsNull(Me.TxtPwd) Or Me.TxtPwd = "" Then
       MsgBox "You must enter a Password", vbOKOnly, "Required Data"
       Me.TxtPwd.SetFocus
       Exit Sub
    End If
   
    If Me.TxtPwd.Value = DLookup("PASSWORD", "tblUserSecurity1", "[recordnum]=" & Me.Combo25.Value) Then
       strUSER = DLookup("UserID", "tblUserSecurity1", "[recordnum]=" & Me.Combo25.Value)
       strUSERRIGHTS = DLookup("secLevel", "tblUserSecurity1", "[recordnum]=" & Me.Combo25.Value)
       'USERRIGHTSM = strUSERRIGHTS
       'DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmLogon", acSaveNo
       'DoCmd.OpenForm "frmCustomRpt"
       
    Else
       MsgBox "Password Invalid. Please Try Again", vbOKOnly, "Invalid Entry!"
       Me.TxtPwd.SetFocus
    End If
   
    intLogonAttempts = intLogonAttempts + 1
    If intLogonAttempts > 3 Then
       MsgBox "You do not have access to this database.Please contact admin.", vbCritical, "Restricted Access!"
       Application.Quit
    End If

you mentioned "securityLevel" is the name of the field,

you are using "secLevel" in this line

strUSERRIGHTS = DLookup("secLevel", "tblUserSecurity1", "[recordnum]=" & Me.Combo25.Value)

try

strUSERRIGHTS = DLookup("securityLevel", "tblUserSecurity1", "[recordnum]=" & Me.Combo25.Value)
