Syntax error in UPDATE statement

ApplellialApplellial Posts: 21Member
The following code generates an error and I am not sure why. Anyone have any ideas?

cmdString2 = string.Format( "UPDATE USERS SET password='" & txtConfirmPassword.Text & "' WHERE username='" & dtrResults("username") & "'")

cmdUpdate = New OleDbCommand( cmdString2, conLogin2 )


When I display the update statement it looks like this:

UPDATE USERS SET password='pswrd' WHERE username='usrname'

I am pretty sure that is ok, but it errors out on the line cmdUpdate.ExecuteNonQuery()

Thank you for any advice.
