I have designed a login page in C# ASP .Net.I am using Oledbcommand to check the login credential.

Following is the code:-

                string connect = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0; Data Source=C:/Users/jahart/Documents/Visual Studio 2010/Projects/ScindiaEvents/ScindiaEvents/Account/Events.mdb;";
                string query = "Select Count(*) From Students Where User ID = ? And Psswrd = ?";
                int result = 0;
                using (OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(connect))
                    using (OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(query, conn))
                        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("User ID", "TextBox1.Text");
                        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("Psswrd", "TextBox2.Text");
                        Session["User"] = TextBox1.Text;
                        result = (int)cmd.ExecuteScalar();
                if (result > 0)
                    lblMessage.Text = "Invalid credentials";

            catch (Exception ex)
                lblMessage.Text = ex.ToString();

When I Click on Login button I get an exception i.e. [System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException (0x80040E14): Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression 'User ID = ? And Psswrd = ?'. at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand.ExecuteCommandTextErrorHandling(OleDbHResult hr) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand.ExecuteCommandTextForSingleResult(tagDBPARAMS dbParams, Object& executeResult) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand.ExecuteCommandText(Object& executeResult) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand.ExecuteCommand(CommandBehavior behavior, Object& executeResult) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand.ExecuteReaderInternal(CommandBehavior behavior, String method) at System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand.ExecuteScalar() at ScindiaEvents.Account.Login.Button1_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) in C:\Users\jahart\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\ScindiaEvents\ScindiaEvents\Account\Login.aspx.cs:line 47]

Try surrounding User ID in '[' and ']' - at the moment the space in the middle of the name will cause the SQL parser to assume the column is called User and that ID is an operator such as AND or OR
