Default ASP to read .CSV into Access

Okay, I am trying to read a .csv file line by line and insert the records into a database through ASP. I can Response.Write sSeg() to the screen, but when I try to insert the records into the database it gives me:

Microsoft JET Database Engine (0x80040E14)
Syntax error in INSERT INTO statement.
/technology/test/gls/import_action.asp, line 32

It works fine if I just insert the first field (sequence), but when I try to insert all four fields it gives me the error. Here is my code:

  set objconn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
  objconn.Open Server.MapPath("csv.mdb")

  set fso = createobject("scripting.filesystemobject")
  set act = fso.opentextfile(server.mappath(csv_to_read),1,Fal se)

  dim sline
  dim sSeg

  Do Until act.AtEndOfStream


  dim strsql
  strsql="INSERT INTO CSV (Sequence, Text, Name, Grade)"
  strsql=strsql & "VALUES('"&sSeg(0)&"', '"&sSeg(1)&"',
  '"&sSeg(2)"', '"&sSeg(3)&"')"

  objconn.execute strsql

  set act=nothing

  set objconn=nothing

Sequence, Text, Name, and Grade are all text fields in my database. The .CSV is comma delimmited.

If anyone has any suggestions I would really appreciate it.

Thanks....but I figured it out. My field name 'text' was throwing it off. Keyword maybe?
