OK. So I have NO idea what I'm doing. I've only worked with Excel VBA, JS, and HTML. No clue how to use access since it's different (except maybe the VB portion of Excel VBA).

I'm trying to make a login form with the standard txtUser txtPassword
lblUser lbl Password, a reset button a cancel button and a login button.
This part, pretty easy, Now, need the Visual Basic portion of it to reflect the Access portion of it. I honestly have no idea on how to set up a database using Access and have no idea doing string searches within Access using VB. :*(
Can anybody help me? I'm sure this has been answered plenty of times, but I dont have the time to look through all 617 pages of posts.

We don't do full database design here; that's not what the site is about! Nor do we conduct "MS Access Classes: From A to Z." We're here to provide members with help on specific problems they're having with database development. If you need help with a particular problem in code or technique, please feel free to ask. You can also use our Search function to look for a certain subjects. Answers for specific questions posted may well include some code samples for illustration purposes that you may even find you can use, but it will not just be done for you.

Please take the time to read the Posting Guidelines.

Here's some sites, listed from the easiest to understand to the more difficult, with excellent tutorials on Access/Access VBA:

Chrystal has an excellent “basics” tutorial:

This is a little more advanced, but still a great starting point, having 23 well written, well defined, clearly named chapters:

Linq,
Thats pretty much all I needed.. ie. reference guides. I didn't expect anyone to help me with the entire project and it would be rude of me to ask. The links should be enough to help me get started. I appreciate the help.
