i have a problem in chapter 15, i was trying to see what would happen if i didnt fill the given name and family name while registering , it should give a message box informing the user that these 2 fields are obligatory , but its giving page cannot be displayed and the following error : Error Type:
Microsoft JET Database Engine (0x80040E21)
Field 'Person.GivenName' cannot be a zero-length string.

Hi manal_saga,
Checking the mandory (or validity of) fields be done at html page using Javascript before submitting to asp for updating the database
if (document.form1.GivenName.value.length == 0)
     alert("Missing Name Information")


Also form fields that are not filled, when updating a database, they carry a null value in the updating query and this may lead to the error your getting.

Sorry I am also new Asp, also to chap15
