Here's a very simple SQL statement that I'm trying to use to create a new record in a simple Access database using ASP: INSERT INTO chatter (name, date, comments, files) VALUES ('bob', #10/31/00#, 'just some words', 'files.jpg') The fields name, comments, and files are all text or memo data types; date is date data type. I continue to get this error: Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80040e14' Syntax error in INSERT INTO statement. /watercooler/post.asp, line 42 Line 42 is my execute line (MyConnection.Execute(strSQL)) What am I overlooking?? I've been beating my head against the wall! This is just too simple, right? - larry ps: Happy Halloween!!
