Default Writing Variables to an access database

Good morning,

I am very new to asp and database connections.

I'm trying to take a set of variables and write them to an access 2000 database. My database name, table name, variable and table column names are all correct as far as I can tell, but when I try to post the data to the database I get the following error:

Unable to post test data to host, cannot submit results! Server returned HTTP response code: 500 for URL: http://numdet01/courses/test/iron/submit.asp

The http path above is the correct path to the submit.asp file. Below is the text from this file:

DIM addstuff

Set addstuff=Server.CreateObject("adodb.connection")
addstuff.ConnectionString="Provider=Microsoft.Jet. OLEDB.4.0;Data Source="&Server.MapPath("db/n395aeval.mdb") & "Persist Security Info=False"


varfinal_score=request.querystring("varfinal_score ")
varelapsedtime=request.querystring("varelapsedtime ")
varcurrentdate=request.querystring("varcurrentdate ")
varcurrenttitlename=request.querystring("varcurren ttitlename")
varcurrenttitlename= Replace(varcurrenttitlename, "'", "~")
firstname= Replace(firstname, "'", "~")
lastname= Replace(lastname, "'", "~")

sqladd="INSERT INTO MAIN (varfinal_score,employeeid,varelapsedtime,varcurre ntdate,varcurrenttitlename,firstname,lastname) VALUES ('"&varfinal_score&"','"&employeeid&"','"&varelaps edtime&"','"&varcurrentdate&"','"&varcurrenttitlen ame&"','"&firstname&"','"&lastname&"')"

Set addstuff= Nothing

Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi dsargent

You Set AddStuff connection bat Where is Recrodset ?

Set Rs = addstuff.execute(sqladd) 

Set RS = Nothing
Set addstuff= Nothing
And Column "varcurrentdate" is text o Date/time ?
Because if Date/time #"& varcurrentdate &"#

Ciao :D

I don’t Speak English very well, excuse me !
