Dim sConnection, objConn, addrecordset, strSQ
sConnection = "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver}; SERVER=localhost; DATABASE=heas; UID=root;PASSWORD=admin; OPTION=3"
Set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set addrecordset = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")

objConn.Open sConnection
strSQL="SELECT staff.staff_id, staff.staff_password, staff.staff_first_name, staff.staff_last_name, staff.staff_email_address FROM staff;"
addrecordset.Open strSQL, sConnection, 1, 3

You CREATE the connection object. You open it.


WHY did you code
addrecordset.Open strSQL, sConnection, 1, 3
instead of
addrecordset.Open strSQL, objConn, 1, 3
I'm not sure that's the problem, but it sure looks like it is.

But now I need to warn you: I do *NOT* think you will be able to use ADODB.Recordset.AddNew with that old MySQL ODBC driver. I believe it doesn't support ADO-based inserts or updates. I think you may have to resort to using a SQL INSERT command. Not sure on that. Things could have changed in the 6 or so years since I used MySQL with ASP. Give it a try, but if it doesn't work be prepared to use SQL INSERT instead.
