asp/vbscript runtime error 424

I am trying to update a microsoft access database via asp page using an update sql query.
When submitting the page the error message that occurs by using the err.number after the query executing the message is "error 424".
There is no file permission error at all. I have made sure that the database file itself has a full read and write permissions and security access rights are set correctly throughout. eg, "everyone" and "anonymous internet user" etc

The asp is running on IIS 5.0 on 2k server

The select query using the object stated below works previously on other pages to retrieve data, but  not to update.
There is an object required according to the error code, but it has not become apparent to myself.

Code is below;


<html>
<head>
<title>Submit DataBase</title>
</head>
<body>
<h2>Submit to Database</h2>

<%on error resume next

'dim conn as adodb.connection
'dim no as string
'dim sql as string
'dim err as exception

dim conn
set conn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
conn.provider="Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0"
'conn.Mode = 3 ' 3 = adModeReadWrite
conn.open(server.mappath("hotel.mdb"))

 if Request.form("action")="Save" then
      no=Request.Form("no")
      sql="UPDATE bookings SET [CustomerName]='" & Request.Form("CustomerName") & "',"
      sql=sql & "[telNo]='" & Request.Form("telNo") &  "' WHERE bookings.[BookingID]=" & no

     

 conn.Execute sql, Recordsaffected
 reponse.write(sql)
 if err <> 0 then
       response.write(err.number)
       'Response.Write("Permission denied")
 else
       Response.Write("Record number " & no & " was updated.")
 end if
 end if  


conn.close%>


</body>
</html>

Never put "on error resume next" in your code until your absolutely sure it works.  I then I wouldn't do it either...but that's up to you.

If you take it out, ASP Runtime will tell you where the error is and what the problem is.  Then you can post that error message here, and we will solve your problem.
