Hello

I am trying to create a log-in page (MS Access) for the first time, and I am getting this error (among others!):

Quote (Visual Studio)

Dim conn As New OleDbConnection(ConnectionString)

Compilation Error: BC30469: Reference to a non-shared member requires an object reference.

The error (blue underline) specifically refers to 'ConnectionString'.

Aren't I saying that OleDbConnection = ConnectionString, and isn't that correct?

Thanks!

This is resolved now.

Cheers!

RE: Error: Reference to a non-shared member requires an object reference.

The problem was not 'ConnectionString' as such, but the line above it. The error disappeared when I used:

CODE --> VB

Dim ConnectionString As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0; Data Source=|DataDirectory|students.mdb;"

        Dim conn As New OleDbConnection(ConnectionString) 

That is, I had not declared 'ConnectionString'\

Hope this helps.
