Default Run-time error 2001

I have created a table of users and password for a login table.
I have created a form using the table fields username and password.
When I go to login the I am getting a runtime error to debug.
When I go to debug it is coming up with this line highlighted.
If Me.Password.Value = DLookup("Password", "Contacts", "[UserID] =" & Me.UserID.value) Then
I am not sure what is wrong.
Can anyone assist me?

I am not sure since I do this a different way.

What I would suggest is to take the PK this way and insert it into the SQL statement as a variable.

Dim iUserID as Integer

iUserID = Me.UserID

If Me.Password.Value = DLookup("Password", "Contacts", "[UserID] = " & iUserID) Then

I would also suggest doing the whole thing with variables:

Dim iUserID As Integer
Dim sPass As String
Dim sLook As String

iUserID = Me.UserID
sPass = Me.Password
sLook = DLookup("Password", "Contacts", "[UserID] = " & iUserID)

If sPass = sLook Then...

I can't verify your DLookUp() syntax.

This takes a little more writing but is more manageable. I find a lot of coders have problems pulling values in the middle of processes instead of taking values from the form as variables and then coding with the variable values. It is also easier to troubleshoot, change and adapt when you do it this way.

Did any of that help? What are the values in the variables when you debug?
