should be:

  cmd.CommandText = "INSERT INTO members (title, first_name, last_name) VALUES ('" & title.Value  & "', '" & first_name.Value  & "', '" & last_name.Value & "')"

You forgot the single quote ' at the beginning and end of each field your entering.  This is required because its a text or memo field in your database.

Regards,

Aeros

also in your post the title text box is gone.  You either need it there or to remove title from the insert statement.
