I'll take a stab at it. I'm going to assume _userid is integer. A typicl update statement would be (at least in MS SQL)

update tblUsers set Password = 'mypassword' where ID = 12345

Note the quotes around mypassword. try this code

cmd.CommandText = "update tblUsers SET Password = '@Password' where ID = @ID"

and see if you still get the error. I find it helps to create the query in the SQL panel in Access (or MS SQL) before coding it up in your app.

"Password" is a protected word in ACCESS (actually in all Databases)
Use instead:
cmd.CommandText = "update tblUsers SET [Password] = @Password where ID= @ID"

com = New OleDbCommand("update Table1 set present=" & Val(TextBox2.Text) & "where name='" & TextBox1.Text & "' ", con)
Call display()
TextBox1.Text = ""
TextBox2.Text = ""

commented: incomplete information -2

Are we supposed to guess what the error message is?

Its probably the lack of a space between Val(TextBox2.Text) & "where name='" because its going to join the TextBox2.Text to where e.g. someValuewhere name = ....
And feel free to create your own posts, there's no need to hijack someone else's.
