Post up your code and we'll have a look. Its hard to fix someone's problem when you can't see what could be causing it...

Private Sub OK_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles OK.Click

    Dim MainrMenur As New frmMainrMenur

    'Logic for login...
    Dim conn As New OleDb.OleDbConnection
    Dim cmd As OleDb.OleDbCommand
    Dim selectQuery As String
    Dim dr As OleDb.OleDbDataReader
    Dim userProfile As String

        'conn = New OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=C:\Video Store\DvDSystem1.accdb;")
        conn = New OleDb.OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Video Store\Video Store\DvDSystem.mdb")
        selectQuery = "SELECT * FROM USERR WHERE userID = '" & txtUserName.Text & "' AND userPassword = '" & txtUserPassword.Text & "'"
        cmd = New OleDb.OleDbCommand(selectQuery, conn)
        dr = cmd.ExecuteReader()
        'if successfull then log in
        If dr.Read() Then
            'Get user profile
            userProfile = dr.GetString(3)
            keptProfile = userProfile
            If keptProfile = "admin" Then
                MainrMenur.btnManageUsers.Enabled = True
                MainrMenur.btnDVD.Enabled = True
                'MainrMenur.btnReports.Enabled = True
                MainrMenur.btnManageUsers.Enabled = False
                MainrMenur.btnDVD.Enabled = False
                'MainrMenur.btnReports.Enabled = False

            End If

        ElseIf txtUserName.Text <> "" Then
            If txtUserPassword.Text <> "" Then
                MessageBox.Show("Wrong login, please try again ...", "Login Denied", MessageBoxButtons.OK)
                MessageBox.Show("Please enter password", "Login Error", MessageBoxButtons.OK)
            End If
            MessageBox.Show("Please enter user id", "Login Error", MessageBoxButtons.OK)
        End If
        'Clear password field after login
        'Catch ex As OleDb.OleDbException
    Catch ex As Exception
        MessageBox.Show("Please exit system and login again.", "Login Error", MessageBoxButtons.OK)
    End Try

got the answer...what i had to do was put [] brackets in fields with spaces.

thanks guys for all your efforts..really appreciate it
