Simple ASP VBscript Question

I have a form, RBS.htm, from which I get a 5-digit input, 'WebPersonalID', from the user. Upon clicking a submit button, it loads 'BookingsQuery.asp'. I want to know how to reference 'WebPersonalID' in this ASP file, and then use it as part of a query to a database.

This is what I have tried so far, but it keeps returning a 'Data Type Mismatch' error.
------------------------------------
<%
    WebID = Request.Form("WebPersonalID")
%>  
<%  sql = "SELECT DISTINCTROW Accounts.PersonalID, Accounts.FirstName, Accounts.Surname, Accounts.BusinessTel, Accounts.CellularTel, Accounts.EmailAddress, Schedule.Date, Schedule.PeriodBooked, Schedule.ObjectBooked  FROM Accounts LEFT JOIN Schedule ON Accounts.PersonalID = Schedule.PersonalID  WHERE (Schedule.PersonalID)='%%WebID%%'"
--------------------------------------------
What am I doing wrong and how can I correct it?

Thank you.

You will need something like this:

<% WebID = Request("WebPersonalID")
%>
<% sql = "SELECT DISTINCTROW Accounts.PersonalID, Accounts.FirstName, Accounts.Surname, Accounts.BusinessTel, Accounts.CellularTel, Accounts.EmailAddress, Schedule.Date, Schedule.PeriodBooked, Schedule.ObjectBooked FROM Accounts LEFT JOIN Schedule ON Accounts.PersonalID = Schedule.PersonalID WHERE (Schedule.PersonalID)='" &  WebId & "'"
Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Conn.Open session("ConnectionString")
Set RS = Conn.Execute(Sql)


This code suggests that WebID is a text field. If this is not correct you will have to omit the '  ' charcters.
Hope this helps, if not, please  give me a note.
