I have a problem with changing the password from Microsoft Access Database. I get an Error "[B]No data exists for the row/column[/B]". The password in the database is encrypted and when I change the password it should be decrypting the password and new password should be updated with encryption again.

I have following Encryption and Decryption Function:

I have following Code with my Change Password page :

My Web Config file contains this connection string:

        <add name="SQLDBConnection" connectionString="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=|DataDirectory|Security.mdb;Persist Security Info=True"/>

I don't where it went wrong. Can somebody help me out?
