Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: need help with correct path to db

  1. #1

    need help with correct path to db

    I have one that is correct for another server, so I used that one as my basis for this one
    Set conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") conn.Open "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=\\content\main_data\onlineNew.mdb;"  
     SQL = "INSERT INTO table1
    But I get an incorrect path error, for the above and DBQ=\\onlineNew.mdb & DBQ=\\content\onlineNew.mdb

    For simplicity and testing I have my form, ASP script & db named onlineNew.mdb all in one directory on a 3rd party ASP server.

    Also do I need to set file permissions on onlineNew.mdb?

  2. #2
    I think I am closer. I now have DBQ=" & Server.MapPath ("onlineNewCreative.mdb")

    and I'm getting Number of query values and destination fields are not the same

    closer still, I think, getting this error Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression ''' '''. for this line:
    conn.Execute SQL, recaffected

    Function RecordInDB
     Set conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    conn.Open "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=" & Server.MapPath ("onlineNewCreative.mdb") 
     SQL = "INSERT INTO table1 (firstname, lastname,  rep_firstname, rep_lastname, artist_firstname, artist_lastname, advertiser, acct_number, click_thru, proof_needed, start_date, ad_type, creative_instruction) VALUES ('" &  strfirstname & "','" &  strlastname & "','" & strrep_firstname & "','" & strrep_lastname & "','" & strartist_firstname & "','" & strartist_lastname & "','" & stradvertiser & "','" & stracct_number & "', '" & strclick_thru & "' '" & strproof_needed & "','" & strstart_date  & "','" & strad_type & "','" & strcreative_instruction  & "')"
    conn.Execute SQL, recaffected
    End Function
