Thanks, but I keep getting the message you are about to update 0 records
see my entire code below:

Private Sub Command4_Click()


    If IsNull(Me.cboEmployee) Or Me.cboEmployee = "" Then
            MsgBox "You must enter a User Name.", vbOKOnly, "Required Data"
            Me.cboEmployee.SetFocus
        Exit Sub
    End If



    If IsNull(Me.txtOldPassword) Or Me.txtOldPassword = "" Then
            MsgBox "You must enter your Old Password.", vbOKOnly, "Required Data"
            Me.txtOldPassword.SetFocus
        Exit Sub
    End If
   


    If IsNull(Me.txtNewPassword) Or Me.txtNewPassword = "" Then
            MsgBox "You must enter your New Password.", vbOKOnly, "Required Data"
            Me.txtNewPassword.SetFocus
        Exit Sub
    End If

    If Me.txtOldPassword.Value = DLookup("strEmpPassword", "tblEmployees", "[lngEmpID]=" & Me.cboEmployee.Value) Then

        lngMyEmpID = Me.cboEmployee
       
   
    Dim strSQL As String
    strSQL = "UPDATE tblEmployees SET strEmpPassword ='" & Me.txtNewPassword & "' WHERE (strEmpName) =" & Chr(34) & Me.cboEmployee.Value & Chr(34) & " and (strEmpPassword) ='" & Me.txtOldPassword & "';"
    DoCmd.RunSQL strSQL
    DoCmd.OpenForm "frmLogon", acNormal
    DoCmd.Close acForm, "frmChangePassword", acSaveYes

     Else
        MsgBox "Password Invalid.  Please Try Again", vbOKOnly, "Invalid Entry!"
        Me.txtOldPassword.SetFocus
    End If
   

   
End Sub

I am not getting anything displayed but the attached when I click on my save/update command button.

My table structure is as follows:
lngEmpID AutoNumber
strEmpName text
strEmpPassword text
strAccess text

The combo box is derived from a query that contains the id, and name. It displays the name but is bound to the id, can this have anything to do with the error?

Yes that is where the error is coming from

use this


    strSQL = "UPDATE tblEmployees SET strEmpPassword ='" & Me.txtNewPassword & "' WHERE lngEmpID =" &  Me.cboEmployee.Value  & " and strEmpPassword ='" & Me.txtOldPassword & "';"

and you may not need this part

and (strEmpPassword) ='" & Me.txtOldPassword & "';"


so just use

 strSQL = "UPDATE tblEmployees SET strEmpPassword ='" & Me.txtNewPassword & "' WHERE lngEmpID =" &  Me.cboEmployee.Value
