Does anybody know a good reference to Access SQL? Preferably online.

I'm getting an error message Syntax Error in INSERT INTO Statement.

Here's the code: it works down to the RunSQL statement. Probably I'm overlooking something, but can't find a reference.
Note: there's no line break after Startdate,, the forum just shortened the line.
Private Sub cmdAddRecord1_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_cmdAddRecord1_Click
    Dim txtSQLAdd As String
    txtSQLAdd = "INSERT INTO Registration ShortName, StartDate, Email, First, Last " & _
        "VALUES (lstShortNameS, lstStartDateS, txtEmailS, txtFirstS, txtLastS);"
    txtFirstS = Forms![Update Registrations].txtFirst
    txtLastS = Forms![Update Registrations].txtLast
    txtEmailS = Forms![Update Registrations].txtEmail
    txtGo = MsgBox("OK to Update?", 1, "Is All Data Correct")
    If txtGo = vbOK Then
        txtAction = "Update"
        DoCmd.RunSQL txtSQLAdd
        txtAction = "Cancel"
    End If

It looks like you are missing a set of parentheses. Try this:

txtSQLAdd = "INSERT INTO Registration (ShortName, StartDate, Email, First, Last) "

BTW- you are inserting EVERYTHING- hence no "WHERE" clause, right?

Thanks Loralee:
You are correct about the parentheses. After I posted the message, I found syntax for INSERT in my WROX SQL Server book.

There's no WHERE in the INSERT statement. It's taking values from text boxes in the form. This form allows the user to browse through the People table, select a person, and add their information to a class registration table. I'm still polishing it.
