I have this CAML below and i'm tring to do something like this. Where username ='username' and id = 'id'

<Query>
     <Where>
         <And>
              <Eq>
                  <FieldRef Name='username'/>
                  <Value Type='Text'>" + username + "</Value>
              </Eq>
              <And>
                  <Eq>
                       <FieldRef Name='Title'/>
                       <Value Type='Text'>" + ID + "</Value>
                  </Eq>
              </And>
         </And>
     </Where>
 </Query>

But it seems somehting is wrong with it. Any ideas what i'm doing wrong and thanks in advance

You can query SPUserField as SPLookupField

<Query> 
     <Where> 
         <And> 
              <Eq> 
                  <FieldRef Name='UserField'/> 
                  <Value Type='Lookup'>" + username + "</Value> 
              </Eq> 
              <Eq> 
                   <FieldRef Name='UserField' LookupId='True' /> 
                   <Value Type='Lookup'>" + ID + "</Value> 
              </Eq>
         </And> 
     </Where> 
 </Query>

Your syntax is wrong, there's to many "Ands". I also prefer to lookup ID like IAfanasov says.

<Query> 
     <Where> 
         <And> 
              <Eq> 
                  <FieldRef Name='UserField'/> 
                  <Value Type='Lookup'>" + username + "</Value> 
              </Eq>
              <Eq> 
                   <FieldRef Name='UserField' LookupId='True' /> 
                   <Value Type='Lookup'>" + ID + "</Value> 
              </Eq>
         </And> 
     </Where> 
 </Query> 

This is a nice starter/reference: http://sharepointmagazine.net/articles/writing-caml-queries-for-retrieving-list-items-from-a-sharepoint-list

Remove the <Query> </Query> part from the text. Your CAML Query should begin with <Where> and end with </Where>

Try using the U2U Caml Query builder to test your CAML queries. OR simply use Camlex.net which would convert your CAML to .Net. Converting to .Net helps you analyzing expression errors in compile time itself.
