because the program is hanging, it is not closing the recordset properly and the #error in the field means the the data has not been written properly.

Hopefully if you have good error handling and your code is working as intended.
And of course you close your recordsets when not needed it will be alright.

When you step through the code in debug does it work ?
Does the code "Hang" all the time or just now and then ?
