Default INSERT & SELECT FROM....? No idea

hi guys

I need to insert seom details into a Access DB. thats no problem. I do need to have a drop down list showing usernames from another table. The value from the drop down is passed onto the other table. How do I do this? Can I have 2 SQL statements on 1 page?
EG. SELECT * FROM Users & INSERT INTO Main......etc

You can have two sql statements. Let me see if I understand; first you select the users and use the drop down box, then when the user selects an option, you want to then insert information into another table?

You can have 2 statements sure, the select is a select into a recordset, and to do the insert you can do connection.execute(SQL).

set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objConn.Open strConnectionString
set objRS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
objRS.Open ("select * from Users", objConn)

do while (not objRS.EOF)
  objConn.Execute("insert into Main (userID, page) values ('" & objRS("UserID") & "', '" & Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME") & "')")
  objRS.MoveNext
loop

Something like that. Although what are you trying to do?
