I'm trying to write a program right now for my computer science class for a program where you insert text into a text box, (the text being a password), and then click a submit button. The goal of the assignment is to have a program that looks at the user given password and see if it matches the const password (or one of the three const passwords in my case). If it doesn't, it is supposed to loop back so you can re-input the password. Also, If you enter the correct password, the loop ends and you are to get a msgbox (or, in my case three different ones), and then the application closes. We are to write the code so that if the password is wrong "x" (insert 3 as the number I have chosen), a MsgBox will pop up with a message saying

something along the lines of "you have gotten the password wrong to many times.", and then the application is supposed to close. I don't think I could rant on much more, I've done a good (or in my eyes terrible) job of summarizing the assignment.
My problem (aside from, I don't know, a problem with my code itself) is that when It reaches the loop, it goes through all the code again, but I'm unable to change the user given password, and so it just pops up the three failed password entry MsgBoxes (the code for which is temporarily removed), then the failed to many times MsgBox, OR one of the successful message boxes. What I'm wondering is if anyone can help me fix my code so that it functions as desired.
