SQL Question

store value from sql statement in variable

My user logs in with username and password, I check in the database if he exists.

I would like after the connection, to get the UserID from the connected user and put it in a variable that I will be able to user later on in my program.

My table user and my two functions. i didn't add all the code as I don't think it is necessary.

| User |
| UserID | Username | password |
| 1 | abc | def |
| 2 | ghi | jkl |

public int Login(string Username, string Password)
clsDataSource.mycon = new OleDbConnection(@"Provider=...");
OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("Select * from Users where email=@email and pwd=@pwd", clsDataSource.mycon);
dr = cmd.ExecuteReader();
DataTable dt = new DataTable();


//code to login

return 0;
catch (Exception ex)
throw ex;

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
//code to check the login


Answer Source

Check this:

var ID = (int)cmd.ExecuteScalar();

this should help!
