If it equals?

This is the most efficient way but you could use a repeat loop do go through each line of the file. Use open file and read from file to get the data into a variable then loop through each line comparing the entered name to the login name. If you only had one name per line then the loop might look like this:
repeat i = 1 to the number of lines in myFile
if loginname is equal to line i of myFile then
-- the login name exists
-- do stuff here
Hopefully this will get you started.
