Log-in form errors

Log-in form errors


I am trying to create a simple log-in page but I am getting three green 'underlines' on this line:

CODE -->

Dim sql As String = "SELECT * FROM university WHERE strEmail = '" & strEmail & "' AND [password] = '" & password & "'", ConnectionString 

The errors are under


CODE -->

& strEmail & 
(Used before assigned a value).

CODE -->

& password & 
(Used before assigned a value).

CODE -->

(No 'As' clause, object assumed)

When I have tried to change 'ConnectionString' to 'conn', I just get other errors.

The page loads in my browser, but I would prefer tidy code. The rest of my code looks like this where the log-in form has two fields strEmail (Email field) and password (Password field):


Using conn As OleDbConnection = New OleDbConnection(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("students").ConnectionString)

                Dim strEmail As String
                Dim password As String

                Dim sql As String = "SELECT * FROM university WHERE strEmail = '" & strEmail & "' AND [password] = '" & password & "'", conn

                Dim cmd As New OleDbCommand(sql, conn)


                Dim dr As OleDbDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader

                Dim strEmailFound As Boolean = False

                Dim passwordFound As Boolean = False

                'if in database:

                While dr.Read

                    strEmailFound = True

                    strEmail = dr("strEmail").ToString

                    passwordFound = True

                    password = dr("password").ToString

                End While


Thank you.

RE: Log-in form errors

When you hover over the green lines, what is it saying?
There are obviously not compilation errors, just warnings.
