ASP - Assigning new val w/'request.form' var in update query

In Visual InterDev, I'm attempting to assign a new value to an update query using [request.form("var")].  VInterDev accepts the variable, but when the ASP form handler is executed, I receive a syntax error.  The criteria can contain a variable name, but what is the proper syntax for entering a variable into the 'new value' field in query designer?

My SQL statement:
UPDATE     tblEFIActionItemRegister_Volt
SET            comments = [request.form("comments")]
WHERE      (id = [id])

Also, I'm using the DCC/DTC component.

Thanks in advance.

What I usually do is make a read/write recordset(named "RS") with a SQL statement like this:

SELECT * FROM Table WHERE ID=[ID]

then

RS("comments")=Request.Form("comments")
RS.Update

and it is done

I don't like the VisualInterdev Wizard, it produces too much code, and whenever you want to adapt something you are lost.
