[SOLVED] You have an error in your SQL syntax, Visual Basic on visual studio with MySQL


I’m new to coding. I’m trying to create a login form with MySQL 8 in visual studio 2019 Please can anyone help me find out what is wrong with my code. When I run the code it executes MsgBox("Dublicate Entry…Contact Costumer Service at 1010) and It gives the following error.

‘MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlException: ‘You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘Where Title=’CEO’ and Name=’Demeth’ and Pin Code=’1234” at line 1′

I have doubt on ; at the end of employee.empde in the MySQL query but when I remove that then MsgBox("Login Failed!", MsgBoxStyle.Critical) gets executed.

Here is my full code. Thank you.

Imports MySql.Data.MySqlClient

Public Class Form1

    Public cmd As MySqlCommand

    Private Sub btnSign_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btnSign.Click

        Dim conn As MySqlConnection
        conn = New MySqlConnection
        conn.ConnectionString = "server=localhost;user id=demeth;Password=*****;database=employeeinfo"

        Dim rdr As MySqlDataReader
        Dim qry As String


            qry = "SELECT * FROM employeeinfo.empde; Where Title='" & cmbTitle.Text & "' and Name='" & txtName.Text & "' and Pin Code='" & txtPin.Text & "'"
            cmd = New MySqlCommand(qry, conn)
            rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader

            Dim count As Integer
            count = 0

            While rdr.Read
                count += 1
            End While

            If count = 1 Then
                MsgBox("Connected Successfully", MsgBoxStyle.Information, "Login Successful")
            ElseIf count > 1 Then
                MsgBox("Dublicate Entry...Contact Costumer Service at 1010", MsgBoxStyle.Critical)
                MsgBox("Invalid Name/Pin Code. Try again", MsgBoxStyle.Critical)
            End If

        Catch ex As MySqlException

            MsgBox("Login Failed!", MsgBoxStyle.Critical)



        End Try
    End Sub
End Class


On your query

qry = "SELECT * FROM employeeinfo.empde; Where Title=

you have a ‘;’ after the table name. Remove it.

 qry = "SELECT * FROM employeeinfo.empde Where Title=

Also: the field PinCode have a whitespace on it. Remove it too.
