INSERT Statement....Help

INSERT Statement....Help

INSERT Statement....Help

The problem I am having is I'm using an Insert INTO Statement in one of the forms I have.  The statement looks like: INSERT INTO table (information) Values (form!form_name!textbox); The problem is I cannot get the value of the textbox in the query.  Does anyone know a solution or maybe even a better way of doing an INSERT.  Thanks for your help

RE: INSERT Statement....Help

What you have looks good to me.
Dim strSQL as string

strSQL = "Insert Into [tablename] (field1,field2) Values (""" & Me![FormField1] & """, """ & Me![FormField2] & """"
... this is for two fields that are of the string data type.

strSQL = "Insert Into [tablename] (field1,field2) Values (""" & Me![FormField1] & """, " & Me![FormField2]
strSQL = strSQL &")"
...this one is a string followed by a number.

Gotta' embed the quotation marks for strings.

Good Luck !
