Dear Friend,

U r matching only one time with datareader..
see datareader has one property that "it is read data row wise and one by one"...

so try while loop...
put condition like as follow
:)

While dr.Read = True

some code()

End While
:)


and obviously there is mistake in

:( from clause:( .....

I think this will help u...

>error - Syntax error in FROM clause

Please check the syntax of select statement.

...
  Dim cn as New OledbConnection("your connection string")
  Dim cmd as new OledbCommand("select [username] from LoginTable where [username]=@para1 and [password]=@para2",cn)

  cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@para1",TextBox1.Text)
  cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@para2",TextBox2.Text)
 
   cn.Open()
   Dim dr as OleDBDatareader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
   if dr.Read() Then
           'Login success
   Else
          'Login fails
   End If
   dr.Close()
   cn.Close()
