Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.OleDb

Public Class Form1
Dim dSet As New DataSet
Dim da As OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter

Private Sub btnLogin_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnLogin.Click
Dim User, pass ', dataPass

If txtUser.Text = "" Then
lblErr.Text = "Nothing"
Else
lblErr.Text = "Here"
End If

User = txtUser.Text
pass = txtPass.Text

Dim conn As New OleDb.OleDbConnection
conn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;" & _
"Data Source=C:\user.mdb"

conn.Open()

Dim strSQL As String
strSQL = "SELECT * FROM user&pass where username = 'admin'"
da = New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(strSQL, conn)
Dim ds As DataSet = New DataSet()
da.Fill(ds) 'fill dataset

Dim dr As DataRow
For Each dr In ds.Tables(0).Rows 'Show results in output window
txtPass.Text = dr("password")

"SELECT * FROM user&pass where username = 'admin'"

Is the table named user&pass?
You might try enclosing it in brackets.
"SELECT * FROM [user&pass] where username = 'admin'"

"SELECT * FROM user&pass where username = 'admin'"
