Try this

Dim conn
Set conn = Server.Createobject("ADODB.Connection")
conn.open "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\dma110\final\final.mdb;"
dim sql

sql = "DELETE FROM about WHERE fname= '" & replace(Request.QueryString("removee"),"'","''") & "'"
conn.execute(sql)

conn.close
set conn = nothing
%>

Also make sure Request.QueryString("removee") actually does have value.

You need the ' for all string fields. If it is not needed for integer fields. The replace function is to prevent syntax error in case the string values has single quotes in it. The replace function replaces every single occurences of single quotes with 2 single quotes.

give points to hongjun:

Dim conn 'this will declare our variable.. a good practice 4 faster performance
Set conn = Server.Createobject("ADODB.Connection") 'creating the connection object
conn.open "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\dma110\final\final.mdb;" 'opening the connection to the database and specifying the connection string
dim sql 'declaring

sql = "DELETE FROM about WHERE fname= '" & replace(Request.QueryString("removee"),"'","''") & "'"  'query string to run against database
conn.execute(sql) 'querying the databse

'cleaning part
conn.close 'closing the connection
set conn = nothing ' destroying the connection object
%>


about replacing the single quote, single quotes are delimiters in SQL (the language), so we double them '' as an escape sequence otherwise if the value of our variable contains O'connor it will throw an error (this site has a similar replace now otherwise it would throw me the error when i post this message)
