    Okay - I have the code below - that's not working for me... My security policies on my work computer won't allow me to turn off the Friendly Error Blocking - so I'm stuck trying to debug the code visually - and I can't figure out why it won't work....

    If I had to guess - I'd say it has something to do w/ the fact that several of the form entries allow for multiple values - but I can't figure out what to do about it...

    Any ideas (or glaring inconsistencies) loungers?
    Thanks in advance,

    DIM objConn 'Holds the Database Connection Object
    Dim rsAddHoax 'Holds the recordset for the new record to be added
    Dim strSQL    'Holds the SQL query to query the database
    Set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    objConn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("hoax.mdb")
    Set rsAddHoax = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
    strSQL = "SELECT * FROM HoaxDB;"
    rsAddHoax.CursorType = 2
    rsAddHoax.LockType = 3
    rsAddHoax.Open strSQL, objConn
    'Add a new record to the recordset
    rsAddHoax.Fields("Unit") = Request.Form("Unit")
    rsAddHoax.Fields("dbSRC") = Request.Form("frmSRC")
    rsAddHoax.Fields("dbChar") = Request.Form("frmChar")

    Are you saying that it works when you fill out the form with single values, or it just never works?

    First, I would try changing the right side of each field assignment to a suitable constant and see whether the record will add. If that works, great. If that doesn't work, there may be a problem with your recordset. When I had to add to an Access MDB from ASP, I opened the recordset on a table rather than using a query, as follows:

    ' Do the Access database update
    Dim objConnA, strConnectA, objRSA
    ' Set up connection object and OLEDB string for local Access database
    Set objConnA = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    strConnectA = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
    				"Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("folder/file.mdb")
    ' Open the connection
    objConnA.Open strConnectA
    ' Set up recordset and run query
    Set objRSA = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
    objRSA.Open "MyTable", objConnA, adOpenKeySet, adLockOptimistic, adCmdTable
    If objRSA.EOF Then
    	Response.Write "Unexpected EOF!" & vbCrLf & "Please contact Jefferson."
    	' Add new record to the recordset
    	' Populate fields with form data and other stuff
    	objRSA("Field1") 	= Request("Form1")
    	objRSA("Field2") = Request("Form2")
    	' etc.
    	objRSA("TimeAdded") = Now
    	If Trim(Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_HOST")) <> "" Then
    		objRSA("UserIP") = Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_HOST")
    		objRSA("UserIP") = Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR")
    	End If
    	' Save new record, close down database objects
    End If
    ' Clean Up	
    Set objRSA = Nothing
    Set objCommandA = Nothing
    Set objConnA = Nothing
    If that's an option for you, see whether that makes any difference.

    Second, I would try commenting out all fields/columns that are not mandatory and see whether the record will add. If so, one of the other fields has a problem. Perhaps that's too obvious.

    I can't see anything obviously wrong.

    Two things you could try:
    • Can you read data from the table- try just selecting a record or two and writing the results out.
    • Write out the form contents back to the screen.
    Are you working on a Vista computer? On my Vista machine I could never get ASP pages to successfully connect to an Access database. Things that worked for years under XP, I could not get to work. I don't try to do it very often. Last time I had do all my testing on the web server rather than my own computer. There is lots of advice about how to fix the problem, but none of it worked for me.

    e.g.This knowledgebase article
