Runtime Error 3134 Syntax Error in INSERT INTO statementHelpful Member!(2)

I can't for the life of me figure this out.  The syntax looks good to me.  Any help would be appreciated.


CurrentDb.Execute "Insert Into RulesNotCrD(AccountName, Note) Values ('" & Me.cboAcName & "','" & Me.Text18 & "')"

What about this ?


CurrentDb.Execute "INSERT INTO RulesNotCrD(AccountName,Note) VALUES ('" & Replace(Me.cboAcName, "'", "''") & "','" & Replace(Me.Text18, "'", "''") & "')"

Hope This Helps, PH.

However, this works...

CurrentDb.Execute "Insert Into RulesNotCrD(AccountName) Values ('" & Me.cboAcName.Value & "')"

It was the use of the column name 'Note'.  I changed the column name to 'RuleNote' and it works great!

thank you!!

How are ya daveinchicago . . .

The SQL of your post origination is right on, only I'd put a space where shown ...


    RulesNotCrD (AccountName, Note)
 ... for easy reading. Otherwise at 1st glance RulesNotCrD(AccountName, Note) looks like a function ... although it should still work.

In any case I couldn't find anything wrong either. So I duplicated the table & fields and setup an append query in query design view to simulate the sql. To my surprise when I went to SQL View, I found that brackets [] embraced the Note field:


INSERT INTO RulesNotCrD ( AccountName, [Note] )
Removing the brackets I received the same error you quoted earlier.

So I tried the same in your VBA SQL and ... Voila! ... works as expected:


   SQL = "Insert Into RulesNotCrD (AccountName, [Note]) " & _
         "Values ('" & Me.cboAcName & "','" & Me.Text18 & "');"
Why this happens I can't say yet. One guess is that maybe Note has been promoted to a reserved word in 2003 or greater.

In any event add the brackets [] an see if it makes the difference.

Your Thoughts? . . .

See Ya! .  .  .  .  .  .

Ace you are correct 'Note' is a reserved word in 2002-2003. For those interested here is a list of reserved words from MS;en-us;286335
