For a start make things easier on yourself and check in your SQl for a user name AND password. Then you don't need to do the second check, if the query returns a row you know the credientials are OK.

Have you debugged your code? If you think an error is being thrown use a try/catch block to see what it is. It can remove a lot of the guess work even if you remove it later.


Okay like @hericles pointed above that code is too much for checking available of a user.Make sure the primary key field of your table is entered by the user as part of the log in info.Use the primary key to retrieve the row of the respective user.If not row ids returned the user is not registered-take necessary action.if a row is returned proceed to services.aspx.

I don't know about that connectionstring u r using.Try:

.connectionsdtring="Data source=your server name;innitial catalog=database name;integrated security=true"


The issues you have is with your select statement. Fist you check for the user and then later in your datarow you check for password. Also, i advice you learn to name controls appropriately not just to help yourself but also help other programmers reading your code.
