That's it! Thanks for your help! :-) I've been learning ASP in the trial-by-fire method... I do have experience with database interactivity using Cold Fusion, and since I see fewer and fewer job listings asking for it, I figured I'd develop some ASP skills. Pretty easy so far, given that I already know Visual Basic.... Just had a few little problems so far. :-) <tip type="Sanity"> Find some sort of physical activity you can do at least once during the working day. It will help cut your stress levels way down, and maybe you'll pick up a marketable skill. Here at the office, I've developed a hellacious game of ping-pong. Marketable? Hell yeah!

Any Ideas? > SequelFunction = "INSERT INTO Links (LinkURL, LinkName, LinkBlurb, > DateAdded) VALUES (LU, LN, LB, LDA)" On top of that, if this is the exact line, then you're not inserting the variables, but the literal values "LU", "LN", "LB", and "LDA" --and Access is puking respectibly. try > SequelFunction = "INSERT INTO Links (LinkURL, LinkName, LinkBlurb, > DateAdded) VALUES ("&LU&", "&LN&", "&LB&", "&LDA&")" and then you have to add tick marks around your character fields, and # around your date fields (for Access) > SequelFunction = "INSERT INTO Links (LinkURL, LinkName, LinkBlurb, > DateAdded) VALUES ('"&LU&"', '"&LN&"', '"&LB&"', #"&LDA&"#)" how's that? sgd --------------------------------------- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of TheList go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
