Hi,

I get the error:

Where ?

You have put a single quote before the file name(Data Source='~\FDXDB3.mdb) which is not closed properly.

It should be like below

SqlConnectionString = "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source='~\FDXDB3.mdb';User ID=Admin;Password=;"

Problem Solved Thanks. Now i just get a stupid error saying that ....
"Syntax error in INSERT INTO statement. " couldn't tell you where it is at... see any problems with my insert statement that i'm blatently missing..

sqlinsert = "INSERT INTO FDXUSER(First_Name,Last_Name,Email,Station_ID,User_Name,Password,SQ_1,SA_1,SQ_2,SA_2,SQ_3,SA_3,Security_Level)Values(" & first_name.Text & "," & last_name.Text & "," & email_address.Text & ",'" & Stationident.SelectedValue & "'," & User_Name.Text & "," & password1.Text & "," & "*,*,*,*,*,*,3)"

You are only putting single quote around Stationident.SelectedValue.

Is that Station_ID the only text column in the FDXUSER table?

If irst_Name,Last_Name,Email etc.. are also text columns, then put single quoto for them.

No, sorry. what it is under the FDXUSERS all the headers are listed. its the First_Name,.... etc. Then the only reason i ahve the Station_ID as a selected value, is because.. its a drop down list. i didn't kno if that really matters or not. Anywyas so i have the db setup to enter information from a text box on all items. so they all need to be text fields...

which gets me to the next question:

i'm guessin it would look like so...

sqlinsert = "INSERT INTO FDXUSER(First_Name,Last_Name,Email,Station_ID,User_Name,Password,SQ_1,SA_1,SQ_2,SA_2,SQ_3,SA_3,Security_Level)Values(" & first_name.Text & "','" & last_name.Text & "','" & email_address.Text & "','" & Stationident.SelectedValue & "','" & User_Name.Text & "','" & password1.Text & "','" & "*,*,*,*,*,*,3)"

EDIT:

btw i got rid of some clutter in that statement. instead of having the SQ1.... and stuff i just deleted it so it looks like this:

sqlinsert = "INSERT INTO FDXUSER(First_Name,Last_Name,Email,Station_ID,User_Name,Password)Values(" & first_name.Text & "," & last_name.Text & "," & email_address.Text & ",'" & Stationident.SelectedValue & "'," & User_Name.Text & "," & password1.Text & "," & ")"

I have now solved my own question :D thanks for the original help!
I hope this helps ppl in the future.-Tyler

sqlinsert = "INSERT INTO FDXUSER (First_Name, Last_Name, Email, User_Name, [Password], Security_Level) VALUES ('" & first_name.Text & "','" & last_name.Text & "','" & email_address.Text & "','" & User_Name.Text & "','" & password1.Text & "','3')"
