is this for use in an ASP Page?

dim objConn
dim strSQL
dim rs

set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
set rs = Server.GetObject("ADODB.Recordset")
objConn.ConnectionString = <connection string to your database>
objConn.Open

strSQL = "Select * from YourTable where 1=0"
rs.OPenRecordset(strSQL)

rs.AddNew
  rs.Fields("Column1") = Value1
rs.Update

OR, to edit a record:

strSQL = "Select * from YourTable where Field = " & SelectedValue

rs.OpenRecordset(strSQL)

rs.Fields("Field2") = NewValue
rs.Update


is that what you mean?

You could try the data control and the dbgrid combination for the simplest option.

Alternately, you could let the Wizards design your first data entry program and evaluate the same thereafter.

knowing where you are using the VBScript makes a difference.  But if it is so hush hush, and you are goingto take thaat attitude,then good luck getting help from any one here.

I am just trying to get some clarification, so that the answer will be appropraite to the circumstances.

I don't understand that attitude, what's the problem that Experts ask for more details?, do you want to find an accurate solution or not?
