Creating a Change Password form on Access 2010

I  created a table and query with the following fields (qryUser):

UserID
FName
LName
Employee Name
Password


I have a frmLogin to select Employee and enter the password:

Private Sub Command12_Click()

'Check for correct password
If Me.txtPassword = Me.cboUser.Column(2) Then
    DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmLogin", acSaveNo
    DoCmd.OpenForm "Home"
Else
    MsgBox "Password does not match, please re-enter!", vboOkOnly + vbExclamation
    Me.txtPassword = Null
    Me.txtPassword.SetFocus
End If
End Sub


I created a form for changing the password - button on frmLogin opens frmPasswordReset

Select Employee box and text boxes to enter current password and new password twice.  

Private Sub btnSave_Click()
If Me.pwFirst = Me.pwSecond And Len(Me.pwFirst) & "" > 0 Then
    DoCmd.CloseForm "frmPasswordReset"
    DoCmd.OpenForm "Home"
Else
    MsgBox "New Password entries do not match. Re-enter ." _
        & vbCrLf & "and please try again.", vbCritical, _
        "Re-enter both Passwords."
End If
End Sub



I have most of it, but I am trying to bind employee name selected on frmlogin to employee name/old password on the frmPasswordReset form then get it to change the password on qryUser.  Can you help?

Your code is actually pretty close... you just need to run an update.

Try this behind the Update Button.  It will change the password, but you should work with how and when which forms get opened to make the overall flow better:

Private Sub Update_Click()
Dim s As String
If Me.pwFirst = Me.pwSecond And Len(Me.pwFirst) & "" > 0 Then
    s = "UPDATE tblUser SET Password = '" & Me.pwSecond & "' WHERE UserID = " & Me.cboUser
    CurrentDb.Execute s, dbFailOnError
    DoCmd.Close acForm, Me.Name
    MsgBox "Password Changed!"
Else
    MsgBox "New Password entries do not match. Re-enter ." _
        & vbCrLf & "and please try again.", vbCritical, _
        "Re-enter both Passwords."
End If
End Sub

Here's the db - I added a couple more checks like verifying that the password entered on the reset form matches the one that is stored.

Also look at the code behind the Change Password button on the login form... I revised that (changed the macro to VBA) to open the reset form specifically to the username selected in the combo box.

You still should work with the opening/closing of the various forms, and maybe add a password check to the "Change Password" button on the login form.  There is a lot you can do on your own to make this work more smoothly.
