Using VB 5.0 to add Foxpro 2.6 records

dbs.Execute "INSERT INTO Paulson " _
   & "(Pnum,Hcode,Des,Ven,Cost,Lstprc,Price,....) VALUES " _
   & "(inPnum,inHcode,inDes,inVen,inCost,.......);"

produces     Run-time error '3061'
             Too few parameters. Expected 12.

Pnum is one of 12 valid fields defined on the existing Foxpro 2.6 database. This code follows my deletion of all records in the Foxpro database - the database is still open.
 
inPnum is one of 12 valid variables each containing valid data.

Any ideas?

DFC,

You must concatenate the variables with the string instead of including their names.

Example
========
dbs.Execute "INSERT INTO Paulson " _
       & "(Pnum,Hcode,Des,Ven,Cost,Lstprc,Price,....) VALUES _
       "(" & inPnum & "," & inHcode & "," & inDes & "," & inVen & "," & inCost & ","....... & ");"

And incase of using string variable you have to include the string in this format "'" & strName & "'"
Example
=======
dbs.Execute "INSERT INTO Paulson " _
       & "(Pnum,Name,....) VALUES _
       "(" & inPnum & ",'" & strName & "'," ....... & ");"


Best regards
