Default Delete from database problem

You will have to pardon me as I am rusty in my coding and some of it might look sloppy. But I can not delete from my database using a link. I'm getting a Microsoft JET Database Engine (0x80040E14)
Syntax error in string in query expression 'NewsID='4'.
/delete.asp, line 17 error. Line 17 is where it opens the link I want to delete. I will include both the "news" page and the delete page for better assistance.


<body bgcolor="black" text="red">

<center>Officers can add other officers by clicking <a href="http://ddempsey.brinkster.net/HOM/login2.asp">here</a></center></p>

Dim adoCon
Dim rs
Dim strSQL

set adoCon=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
adoCon.Open "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\HOM\HOM.mdb"

set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")
rs.Open strSQL, adoCon

<%do until rs.EOF%>

   <%for x=0 to 1 %>
      <%Response.Write(rs.fields (x).value)%><br>
Response.Write("<a href=""delete.asp?News=" & "'" & rs("NewsID") & """>")


Dim adoCon
Dim rsDeleteEntry
Dim strSQL
Dim lngRecordNo

lngRecordNo = Request.QueryString("News")

Set adoCon = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
adoCon.Open "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\HOM\HOM.mdb"

Set rsDeleteEntry = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
strSQL = "SELECT News.* FROM News WHERE NewsID=" & lngRecordNo
rsDeleteEntry.LockType = 3
rsDeleteEntry.Open strSQL, adoCon
Set rsDeleteEntry = Nothing
Set adoCon = Nothing
Response.Redirect "News.asp"

These are running in frames but even if I try to do it without the frames I get the same error. I have yet to figure out how to setup ASP to run frameless but to look like it has frames :-)

I feel especially silly right now. I have fixed my own problem. If anyone would like to know where it was it was in this line.

Response.Write("<a href=""delete.asp?News=" & "'" & rs("NewsID") & """>")

The error was with the "'". I did not need that bit of code. I took it out and it started to work. Thanks to all of those who might have looked at it.
