I have 3 strings (sA, sB, sC) with some content.

I would like to know how to insert these strings in a MS Access
Database in the following manner.

Col 1 = sA
Col 2 = sB
Col 3 = sC

Do you know what I mean?

Are these 3 strings different fields ? Or these strings one field ? Which must be inserted into one field ? Here is some sample code. This uses OLEDB provider.

Dim Cn as New ADODB.Connection
Dim sCon as string,sSql as string
sCon = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
"Data Source=C:\my documents\mb.mdb;"
Cn.Open scon
Col1 = sA
Col2 = sB
Col3 = sC
sSql = "Insert Into <tablename> Values ('" & col1 & "','" & col2 & "','" & col3 & "')"
Cn.Execute sSql,adExecuteNoRecords
cn.close
Set cn = nothing
This code will insert records into 3 fields. Explain me if this is not what you looking for.

first, col 1,2,3 are not columns persey, they are fields. in excel, they're columns, in access, they're fields. to make the following code work, you need to make a reference to the jet 351 dao control under project->references. with that done... here ya go.

public function addtomydb(byval col1 as string, byval col2 as string, byval col3 as string)

dim DB as database
dim RS as recordset

set db = opendatabase("yourdbpathandname")
set rs = db.openrecordset("nameoftablewhereyouwanttoputthisstuff")
with rs
  .addnew
  .fields("fieldname1") = col1
  .fields("fieldname2") = col2
  .fields("fieldname3") = col3
  .update
end with
rs.close
set rs = nothing
db.close
set db = nothing
end function

now, there are at least 101 other ways of doing this addition, and undoubtedly, you'll receive many more suggestions. i'm not going to tell you this is the best way because the best way is dictated by your application and what you're trying to accomplish. this is just one way.

hope this helps.
later.

Dude its not necessary to lock the question. If it will be the right answer he can accept your comment. If the question is locked others can't see it since most of them don't browse answered question. I beat your time though :-) i got my answer in first. Blue my example uses ADO method of access his example uses DAO you havent' specified what you were using. My method would be faster for one reason only. It uses SQL to update and it doesn't create a recordset which is a plus.
